about this book

Colette Dowling's uplifting book celebrates the myriad possibilities for women who are edging up to, at, or just beyond 50. "Red hot mamas" are the dozens of women (some famous, some not) who are defying stereotypes to discover renewed power and vitality at midlife. In honest, empowering language, the women share with readers their ways of moving beyond the fears of aging and changing, learning to chart their own course in careers, family life, and intimacy. 304 pp.
