Hecklers? Apparently, some women have taken umbrage at Kinney and Ratzlaff's take on the "crone" issue. It turns out there are a number of gals who do embrace their "inner crone" and don't like to be told they can't. Who knew?
For her part, Scarcello says she "was driven by a desire to find an answer to the question 'What is a woman's role in society once the biological urge to reproduce is past?'"
She continues: "I looked to a type of woman I had admired my whole life to find my answers. They are the vibrant, strong older women whose energy radiates from the light in their eyes." In "Fifty & Fabulous!" she focuses on women between 45 and 103, who are not about to stop their lives because of some ridiculous notion that they're "old."
"Menopause is just a reminder that we're aging, it's a nudge," Scarcello says. She points out that in days gone by "women generally died before they went through menopause. Now we have years ahead of us."
