After 15 years of studying women, Mary Lou has reinvented Just Ask a Woman as a theatrical enterprise. As an actor and producer of over 40 live solo events including a sold out Off-Broadway run and 24 performances at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, she’s developing new work centered on women’s lives.



She’s authored four books: two groundbreakers on consumer behavior, a gamechanger on women’s overworked lives and now a bestseller about her mom. She’s also written dozens of articles including features for Real SImple, O, the Oprah magazine, and MORE.
