About this item

Helps women break through the tired and hurtful stereotypes of aging to better reflect who they are, how they live, and what they want as they age.Who hasn't heard the stereotypes about women of a "certain age?" That's the age when women become invisible, irrelevant, undesirable, asexual, unhinged, dried-up, hormonal messes. It's when women quickly slide into fragility and become forgetful, passive, weak, feeble, debilitated, disabled, dependent, and depressed. Or so the story goes. Not only are those outdated narratives sexist and ageist, they are also damaging to women's physical, emotional, financial, romantic, and sexual health. It's time to change them.In Not Too Old for That, Vicki Larson helps change the narrative about being a woman at midlife and older.

About the Author

Vicki Larson

When she was 19, Vicki Larson somehow convinced her parents that she should spend the summer traveling cross-country with friends to gather stories to write the Great American Novel instead of working and saving money for college. She has yet to write that novel, but is incredibly honored and humbled nonetheless to have had a long, enjoyable career telling other people's stories as a journalist.

A native New Yorker, Vicki is a divorced mom of two wonderful young men who happen to be taller than she is now so she's a lot nicer to them. In addition to a being an award-winning reporter, columnist and editor at a San Francisco Bay Area newspaper, her writing can be found in The New York Times, The Guardian, Aeon, The Washington Post, Role Reboot, the Huffington Post, Divorce Force and the Good Men Project.

Her essays have appeared in the books "Nothing But the Truth So Help Me God: 73 Women on Life's Transitions" and "Knowing Pains: Women on Love, Sex and Work in Our 40s," a fundraiser for breast cancer.
