Even though I like to say boomers are "reinventing the spirit and style of aging," some of our notable foremothers felt the same way we do now. One remarkable woman, Jane Addams, wrote an essay on aging entitled "Need a Woman Over Fifty Feel Old?" Published in October of 1914, Ms. Addams used the piece to express the same sentiments felt by many of us today. Ms. Addams was a revolutionary trendsetter and age did not slow her down in the slightest. So tune in, learn all about her and her fascinating life from Louise Knight, author of Jane Addams: Spirit in Action. This remarkable woman truly did celebrate the feisty side of fifty!
