The women of Defying Gravity prove it's never too late to pursue your dreams. In their own words, the inspired women of Defying Gravity share their stories, their feelings, their personal struggles, and their victories - proving that reinvention is always possible and that greater happiness can come to anyone at any age. Wini Yunker left the US for a two-year Peace Corps assignment in Ukraine at the age of 65. Rainelle Burton published her critically acclaimed first novel, "The Root Worker," when she was 52. Patricia Symonds, a professor at Brown University, didn't earn her high school diploma until she was in her forties, and got her Ph.D. in anthropology in her fifties.
