The silent passage : menopause by Gail Sheehy( Book )
45 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in 9 languages and held by 3,971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"All women face menopause, but, as Gail Sheehy so compellingly reveals in interviews with women from a broad spectrum of economic, ethnic, and racial backgrounds, the passage is seldom easy. Distracting symptoms, confusing medical advice, unsympathetic reactions from loved ones, and the scornful attitudes of society at large often make menopause a lonely and emotionally draining experience." "In this groundbreaking book, Sheehy sets out to erase the stigma of menopause and "render normalcy to a normal physical process." She writes frankly about her own experiences and uncovers the frustrations of other women who have long suffered in silence. She brings together the most current information from the United States and abroad and assesses women's options and risks. This is a book of candor and hope that places menopause within the cycle of life as "the gateway to a second adulthood."" "When portions of this book first appeared in Vanity Fair, the response was immediate and electrifying. For everyone who has experienced menopause--and the millions of women of the baby-boom generation who will soon face it--The Silent Passage is sure to become a touchstone."--Jacket

In this groundbreaking work, cultural observer Sheehy reveals a hidden phenomenon--increased vitality in women's sex and love lives after fifty. This is a new universe of passionate, liberated women--married and single--who are unwilling to settle for the stereotypical roles of middle age and are now realizing they don't have to. As life spans grow longer and as societal constraints continue to loosen, older women--free of the exhausting demands of young children, needy husbands, and demanding careers--find themselves ready to pursue the passionate life. They embrace their "second adulthood" as a period of reawakening. Combining interviews and research, this book gives voice to more than a hundred colorful women, whose stories tell of wives who reinvigorate their marriages after their children leave the nest, as well as divorced, widowed, and long-single women who find new dreams and new loves.--From publisher description

Hustling: prostitution in our wide open society by Gail Sheehy( Book )
7 editions published between 1971 and 1977 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The netherworld of prostitution has never before been so deeply explored or vividly portrayed as in this book. Sheehy presents a realistic portrait of a fierce new breed of woman on the American scene. "The subculture of prostitution was the place to pick up early warning signals of how women in 'straight' society would begin to use their sex--and their specific sexual advantage--to push against our social boundaries. Violent women are part of a much larger cultural shift. In contemporary America as it undergoes a slow earthquake of gender, we can see the awakening assertiveness of women most starkly at the farthest distance from the conventional center--in the netherworld." Hustling follows the class ladder of the vocation, from street hooker to independent call girl to the courtesan who plays not only for wealth but for social position. It also reveals who makes the profits: the pimps and pornographers, the lawyers and politicians, the Mafia--and the landlords, some of the largest taxpaying property owners in the nation.--From publisher description
