JEANIE LINDERS (Creator/Writer)
Jeanie Linders created and wrote the original MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL®, and was a passionate voice for a generation of women facing more than just hot flashes. She was the recipient of the Veteran Feminist Medal of Honor presented by Gloria Steinem, and funded women’s education and housing programs from New Orleans to Kenya and Ghana, as well as raising over a million dollars for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, as well as other charities.
