Gail Collins

The Newest Women’s Liberation

The 1970s ad was groundbreaking.  After centuries of mature women being treated as almost dispensable once they could no longer reproduce, a new campaign for hair dye proclaimed, “You’re not getting older . . . you’re getting better.” Now no longer rearing children or climbing corporate ladders, older women are discovering new freedom . . . and the blessings of their golden years.

In her latest book, No Stopping Us Now: The Adventures of Older Women in American History, acclaimed New York Times columnist Gail Collins traces Americans’ complicated relationship with aging, and how women have been on the front lines of the battle against youthism.
