Guest: Gail Collins

In New York Times columnist GAIL COLLINS’ new book “No Stopping Us Now,” she traces how women of a certain age have been viewed by society and how trailblazers like Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Eleanor Roosevelt,  Ruth Bader Ginsberg, among many others, have defied those stereotypes and fought for reforms. She joins Marty with colorful nuggets from American history and anecdotes that how much older women have moved the nation towards a more inclusive country within her lifetime.
