Editorial Reviews


"It's a treat to hear about the good old days when FDR was president and to gain perspective on today's politics from women who have survived a century's worth of loss and turmoil. They don't take anything for granted, and neither should those of us who stand on their shoulders."

--Eleanor Clift, columnist, The Daily Beast

"Moving forward can sometimes seem impossible. These stories of women who waited so long to have their voices heard serve as an inspiration for anyone interested in the patience, passion, and devotion required for change."

--Mayim Bialik, PhD, actor, neuroscientist, author

"I'm pretty sure I just made 78 new best friends. I love reading about and seeing pictures of the eleven Marys, nine Helens, six Ruths, and the countless others--I would hire any of them for my writers' room. They make me excited to be 104, and I hope they get to see a woman in the White House. At least they got to see a female late-night host."

--Samantha Bee, Host of TBS's late-night show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

"Inspiring testimony from survivors--women in late old age who have lived through the Great Depression, World War II, and McCarthyism, as well as Hillary Clinton's defeat. They advise courage, hope, humor, keeping on, and knowing that conditions will change. A wonderful, comforting read!"

--Bonnie S. Anderson, Professor Emerita of History, City University of New York
