Overview

Millions of women are now coming out the other side of their reproductive years with a flare and a fury that can only be likened to a force of nature. Menopause is no longer merely a passage in one woman's life--it's a movement!

Yes, fifty is fashionable, and sweltering women are speeding down the Hormone Superhighway in numbers too big to ignore, setting trends in everything from lingerie to air conditioning, snack foods to home permanents.

Taking an equally jaundiced view of estrogen patches and wild yam creams, Red Hot Mamas do menopause with style.

Meet the Author

Marie Evans
Marie-Christine, a true Southern belle, was born sometime in March A.D. Feeling repressed in her native South, she fled North in order to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a painter. Finally a liberated woman in New York, Marie wasted no time in marrying, thus ending her career as a painter. Two perfect daughters later, Marie, wishing to give thanks for her good fortune, has become a committed advocate for women's issues. You will find this mom behind the wheel of "Powder Puff," her pink, hormone-injected flashmobile, demonstrating Kegel exercises in front of Victoria's Secret on Mondays and Wednesdays. Marie has unselfishly donated her mind and body to science (her body was rejected). Holding both her BFA and MFA degrees, she is currently working toward her PMS degree from the correspondence school of The Convent of Hormonal Sorrows.

Ann Shakeshaft
Ann, a fashionable former art director at Mademoiselle, Glamour, Seventeen, and Woman's Day, now fills her prescriptions and her days color-coding and artistically arranging her wide assortment of pills. At her young age of forty-something, Ann is the envy of both her friends. She is attractive and fit and shows no signs of the mid-life crisis which she has undergone. Ann has unexpectedly survived one marriage, two children, a hysterectomy after each child and numerous renovations on her home (none on her body). Today, with the help of the corner clairvoyant, her manicurist, personal trainer, hairdresser (specializing in transplants), six-packs of anti-aging cream and frequent trips to Canyon Ranch, Ann has become the woman she used to be. Her husband and children visit on weekends.
