WOOF: 50 Women Over 50 - Toni Morrison

The list is endless. Women Only Over Fifty (WOOFers) who lead vibrant, meaningful lives and just seem to get younger every day. This week's Sister on the Frisky Side of Fifty:

Toni Morrison is winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize in Literature. Her Nobel citation reads: "[Toni Morrison]who in novels characterized by visionary force and poetic import, gives life to an essential aspect of American reality."

Morrison's novels typically concentrate on black women, but she does not identify her works as feminist. She says, "It's off-putting to some readers, who may feel that I'm involved in writing some kind of feminist tract. I don't subscribe to patriarchy, and I don't think it should be substituted with matriarchy. I think it's a question of equitable access, and opening doors to all sorts of things."

Thank you, Ms. Morrison, for using your writing talent to open our minds and hearts to reality...both bitter and beautiful.
