Summary, etc.:
Antony said of Cleopatra, "age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety." Shakespeare's sentiment can be applied to the amazing women in Marlene Wagman-Gerrer's Second Acts: In Praise of Older Women who refused to be defined by the dates on their birth certificates. Their lives serve as testimony that one can be feisty after fifty and to those who think otherwise, in the words of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, "I dissent." Discover how chef Julia Child changed the way America ate, what inspired Mother Teresa to serve, and how Rita Moreno transformed from penniless immigrant to queen of the silver screen"--Back cover.
