Last week, I can’t remember where, I read some biological essentialist claptrap about feisty older women, that it was somehow all to do with less hormonal oestrogen in the post menopausal years.
I can’t help but wonder whether it’s more to do with older women’s accumulation of life experiences, and also that older women have moved beyond the societal dictum that the sexual approval of the opposite sex is all. Political activism that may well benefit one’s progeny is far more important.
P.S. Helen – haven’t forgotten Zoe Balll, how about a guest post?
