Women of an Uncertain Age: Indomitable Baby Boomers by Joan Lobis Brown

Baby boomer women, those born between 1945 and 1964, the first generation to expect that they could “have it all”- are once again pioneers – fighting ageism and sexism. They are rapidly changing our culture and politics. These images are from “Women of an UNcertain Age: Indomitable Baby Boomers Challenging Cultural Norms” my portraiture series with accompanying text from interviews, that focuses on American women of diverse ethnicities, religion, sexual identities, professions and socioeconomic backgrounds. As these women enter their mid-50s, 60s and 70s, they are defying stereotypes. These are ordinary baby boomers who have shattered stigma to become extraordinary women launching new careers, achieving physical goals and overcoming challenges. These women are strong, resilient, tenacious, courageous and unstoppable. Their stories cover a wide variety of accomplishments: they are athletes, scholars, activists, businesswomen, artists, immigrants and survivors. Role models, all.
