Spunky old broads are positive, fun, butt-kicking women over the age of 50 who refuse to sit back quietly and get old. They want excitement! They want a regret-free life! They want form fitting aprons! They want calcium supplements!
...over the age of 50...
I turn 50 this year.
I am not old. Spunky, yes. But old, no. Although I did use the word 'cool' earlier, so...
When I think of spunky broads I think of the Golden Girls. Or Helen Mirren. Tina Turner. Katey Sagal - I loved her on the Sons of Anarchy. And the Goddess herself - Meryl Streep.
The Queen, who is still rocking her royal duties at the age of 88. Harriet Tubman and her incredible life which in later years contributed to the woman's sufferage movement. Eleanor Roosevelt who at the age of 63 became the 1st Chairman of the Human Rights Commission. Mother Theresa who's name is synonymous with charity and compassion and who was awarded a Nobel Prize.
All of whom had spunk and who certainly kick butt. So, if they're the definition of a spunky old broad then I'll take the moniker and use it proudly.
Who are some of your favourite spunky old broads?
