Reinvented lives- Women at sixty, a celebration

£3.99

Product description

The subjects in this text provide the models for what has become a new age for many women. 28 women, including Anita Roddick and Prue Leith, write their own personal stories which are accompanied by Elizabeth Handy's photographs.

Twenty-eight women, ranging from Anita Roddick and Prue Leith to less well-known names, write their own personal stories which are accompanied by Elizabeth Handy's black and white photographs and an introductory essay by Charles Handy. This generation of women is entering the sixties more healthy, more educated and more energetic than most of their mothers. The subjects in this book provide the models for what has become, for the first time, a new age for many women. Released from most of the cares and responsibilities that accompany midlife for women, they are free to reinvent themselves, to give more time to their career or calling, or to luxuriate in the serenity and friendships that few had time for in the past. Some enter new relationships, some start new careers or go back to study, some find that their work is only now reaching its peak. Many have survived traumas and tragedies, but 'the past is just the prologue' as one of them explains.

Condition: Dust jacket and book are in very good condition with only minor signs of wear.
