"A Wealth of Experience is a celebration of the achievements of older women in their own words. 18 women, mostly between 40 and 65 talk openly about their personal experiences, the political changes that have influenced their lives and of the growth and significance of the Women's Movement. These women talk about their memories of the Second World War; of the problems they faced with contraception and unwanted pregnancy in times when women risked losing their lives through abortion; of the racism women experienced when settling in Britain; of politics and the peace movement; of life as a cancer survivor."--From cover.
