A woman's worth is often based on her fertility. And once you hit that critical stage, menopause, ageism kicks in fast.
But guess what?! Aging isn't something just old people do. We're aging from the minute we're born. Hell, we're aging before we're EVEN born!
So why is there such a negative narrative surrounding aging? And how can we change the cultural perspectives, especially when it comes to aging women?
Well, Ashton Applewhite is just the person to help us out. She is an author and activist, and a leading spokesperson for a movement to mobilize against discrimination on the basis of age.
She and Dr. Pam discuss ageism, what determines a woman's worth and value, the myth of "independent living," as well as 55+ living environments.
