50 over 50: Extraordinary Women, Extraordinary Lives

by Debbie Rowe & Tracey Larcombe
£15.99   hardback  Dewi Lewis Media Ltd (2007)

50 over 50: Extraordinary Women, Extraordinary Lives by Debbie Rowe & Tracey Larcombe 50 over 50 is an inspirational and life-affirming book, which will stir the imaginations of women about to turn 50, as well as those who are already there and beyond. It will also encourage younger women, who may be less than convinced that there is life after the age of 50, to think again.

It features the stories and portraits of 50 amazing women over 50 known and unknown from all over the world, and from all walks of life from politicians to film stars, lifeboat crew to space explorers, scientists to aid workers.
It looks at their lives and experiences, their views on being over 50, their achievements and their philosophy of life.

Included amongst these extraordinary women are:
 
Angela Baker, one of the original Calendar Girls;
Susan Sarandon, actress and anti-war campaigner;
Cynthia Paine, former luncheon voucher madam;
Anne Abernathy, six times Olympian, known as 'Grandma Luge';
Patricia Warren, farmers' match-maker;
Zandra Rhodes, fashion designer;
Carol Sing, long distance swimmer;
Carolyn Grace, Spitfire pilot;
Jane Russell, Cinema legend and founder of WAIF/Operation Children;
Sally Morgan, Diana Princess of Wales' psychic;
Georgia Durante, ex-Mafia wife and Hollywood stunt driver;
Pom Oliver, Arctic and Antarctic Explorer;
and Rosie Swale Pope, round-the-world solo runner.
