Anne Kreamer thought she was a youthful 49 until she saw a photo taken with her teenage daughter that stopped her in her tracks. In one moment she saw herself for what she really was - a middle-aged woman with her hair dyed much too harshly. Kreamer realised that she wasn't fooling anyone about her age and decided it was time to get real. She set out for herself a program to let her hair become its true color, and to discover her true self. GOING GRAY is an exploration of that experience and a frank, warm, and funny investigation of aging. Through interviews and experiments, Kreamer probes the issues behind two of the biggest fears mature women face: Can I be sexually attractive as a gray-haired, middle-aged woman? and Will I be discriminated against in the work world? Her answers are surprising and provocative.
