The glory of growing older is the freedom to be more ourselves—to become more liberated, engaged, and empowered, to worry less about what other people think. Contrary to popular wisdom, with age women gain the liberty to pursue bold new endeavors, becoming happier and more at home in the world.

In A Glorious Freedom: Older Women Leading Extraordinary Lives, author and artist Lisa Congdon explores the power of women growing older and thriving. From bestselling authors Cheryl Strayed and Caroline Paul, to super-model-turned-activist Christy Turlington and Advanced Style icon Ilona Smithkin, essays by and interviews with individuals who have changed careers, found creative fulfillment, discovered new loves, demonstrated athletic prowess, and rejoiced in a true sense of self; profiles of women in history who accomplished incredible things at an older age; and honest quotations from a diverse field of inspirational figures, are all lavishly illustrated in Congdon’s signature style.

An open letter of encouragement to women of all ages, A Glorious Freedom celebrates extraordinarily lives lived over the age of 40, and redefines what it means to grow older.
