Weeping Willow Books presents

Unmasked LIVE

Women Read About Sex and Intimacy After Fifty

Unmasked LIVE, a blush-worthy performance of essays and poems from the new anthology, Unmasked, Women Write About Sex and Intimacy After Fifty. The production features readers Deborah Donohue, Andrea Weir Estrada, Maya Shaw Gale, Tanya Ko Hong, Perie Longo, Nancy Shobe, Linda Stewart-Oaten, and the anthology’s editors, Marcia Meier and Kathleen Barry.
In these days of heightened awareness about women and sex, #MeToo revelations, and soul-searching over sexual harassment, "Unmasked LIVE” offers a look at the inner world of women, sexuality and intimacy—and how important it is to talk about and focus on healthy sex.
As Gloria Steinem said: “Sex for women after 50 is invisible for the same reason that contraception, abortion, and sex between two women or two men has been forbidden: sexuality is supposed to be only about procreation. This lie was invented by patriarchy, monotheism, racism and other hierarchies. Sexuality is and always has been also about bonding, communicating, and pleasure. ‘Unmasked’ helps to restore a human right.”
