AGEISM PERMEATES OUR CULTURE IN SUBTLE AND NOT SO SUBTLE WAYS.
Ageism is stereotyping and discrimination against individuals or groups on the basis of their age. Older people themselves can be deeply ageist, having internalized a lifetime of negative stereotypes about aging.
In The Entertainment Field
While male actors see their careers peak at the age of 46, female actors reach their professional pinnacles at age 30. These “aging” actors have to embrace new roles pitching products about hearing aids and reverse mortgages.
In The Work Place
Seniors have been encouraged to retire early so that younger workers can take their jobs for less money.
In Social Settings
Older family members often sit alone while younger members of the family laugh and converse.
“Along comes Ashton Applewhite with a book we have been waiting for. Anti-ageism now boasts a popular champion and activist. Until This Chair Rocks we haven’t had a single compact book that blows up myths seven to a page like fireworks.”
