9780060952532: Be an Outrageous Older Woman

In a society that worships youth and relegates its seniors to second-class citizen status, many elderly women end up ignored, mourning their lost youth. It doesn't have to be that way, says Dr. Ruth Harriet Jacobs, Remarkable Aging Smart Person and self-proclaimed troublemaker. Her solution: Be An Outrageous Older Woman. A unique guide to living it up in the senior years, this feisty book addresses the many issues faced by older women in a sassy, humorous and yes, even outrageous way. Drawing from her personal experience and from years of meticulous research, Dr. Jacobs covers such areas as:

  • Sexuality: an A-to-Z list of different ways to keep the fires of passion burning

  • Reinventing yourself

  • Having fun on a tight budget

  • Fostering relationships and social groups

  • Being outrageous with your descendants

  • The benefits and bonuses of aging -- the most freedom since puberty

  • Much, much more

    Filled with practical advice and innovative ideas, Be an Outrageous Older Woman gives readers the knowledge and inspiration they need to live as first-class citizens and make their golden years shine.
