Older women disappear from our TV screens, our novels, from sight. Negotiating public life can be a challenge when you ‘disappear’ from view.
Women of a Certain Age is a collection of stories of identity and survival, and a celebration of getting older and wiser, and becoming more certain of who you are and where you want to be
Join Liz Byrski and Jodie Moffat as they discuss life the other side of 40.
