Do You Know “A Woman Like That?“

On this Your Call, we have a conversation with Elaine Madsen about her award winning documentary film, “I Know A Woman Like That.” We also speak with the celebrated author Maxine Hong Kingston and Barbara Hillary, the first known African-American woman to reach the North Pole, at the age of 75 in 2007.

The documentary features women passionately engaged in spirited endeavors at a time when the world expects them to be in their rocking chairs. Is there an older woman in your life who counters stereotypes about growing old? What can we do to honor “older people?” It’s Your Call, with me, Rose Aguilar and you.
