Publisher Comments:

On Women Turning Fifty honors the new faces of aging with powerful, positive images of fiftysomething women who share stories of mid-life discovery. Accomplished by beautiful photographs, these candid and engaging interviews reveal women whose challenges, conflicts, and triumphs are reshaping our attitudes toward work, relationships, and personal growth. From Gloria Steinem, Isabel Allende, Ellen Burstyn, and Mary Ellen Mark to single-parent school teacher Deanne Burke and breast cancer survivor Barbara Eddy, the diverse voices in On Women Turning Fifty offer exhilarating models of confidence, courage, and celebration.

Synopsis:

In interviews with women as diverse as single-parent school teachers and celebrities Gloria Steinem, Ellen Burstyn, and Isabel Allende, Rountree offers intimate portraits of 18 women who show us that mid-life can be the prime of life for women today. Black-and-white photos.
