"Once depicted as witches, croneks, and hags in fiction, burned at the stake in the not-so-distant past, the older woman is still largely scorned in America today. In a solidly researched, compassionate study, Ruth Jacobs ... presents a frank assessment of the older woman's position in American society. She offers unique and workable suggestions for breaking the restrictive roles woman now occupy and broadening the options open to older women. She shows how they can increase the opportunity for their personal growth"--Back cover.
