about

Antony said of Cleopatra, “Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale/Her infinite variety.” Shakespeare’s sentiment can be applied to the women profiled in Great Second Acts who refused to be defined by the dates on their birth certificates. Their lives are testimony that one can be feisty after fifty and to those who think otherwise, in the words of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, “I dissent.” Marlene Wagman-Geller, author of ONCE AGAIN TO ZELDA, and BEHIND EVERY GREAT MAN presents a fascinating collection of biographical vignettes of dozens of women of a certain age who have excelled, inspired and achieved. Written in an accessible narrative style, readers of all ages will enjoy Wagman-Geller’s entertaining storytelling prose of these remarkable women. An excellent gift for students, mothers, sisters or friends, GREAT SECOND ACTS will endure and delight. • Fabulous Females featured: • Anna Marie Robertson: (Grandma Moses) American painter Golda Meyer (American president of Israel) Margret Kuhn american founder of the Gray Panthers) Rita Moreno (Puerto Rican/American actress) Ruth Bader Ginsburg (SCOTUS with the mostest) Judy Schlein (American television judge) Iris Apfel (American fashionista) Mother Teresa (Albanian nun) Ruth Handler (American entrepreneur) Erica Jong (American author) Sue Ellen Cooper (American founder of the Red Hat Society) Dr. Ruth Westheimer (German sexologist) Laura Ingalls Wilder (American author) Julia child (American chef) Jane Fonda (American actress)
