Based on candid interviews with prominent artists and scientists over age 65, this audiobook provides inspiration, support, and guidance for young women entering careers, for midcareer changers, and for women reentering the workplace after time off to rear children.
Parents, guidance and career counselors, and gender studies professors will find this book invaluable in providing women with role models who share their life stories with humor, compassion, and zest.
The author conceived of this project while a visiting research scholar at Wellesley Centers for Women in the 1990s. The stories were so compelling that she decided they must be made available to the general public rather than merely to an academic audience. The audiobook is based on extensive interviews with highly successful women scientists and artists who were ages 65 to 95 when the author met them. It is comprised of five sections:
History of women and work from the early part of the twentieth century until now
Lives through time--traces the women's stories from their formative years through the times they realized their highest achievements
Common themes found in their stories
"Lives in context" presents in-depth stories of four of the women
"Looking ahead" offers insights about what the reader can learn from the stories of these exemplary women.
