Podcast: Ashton Applewhite on why ageing is a powerful time for women

Glory days

Ageism has been called the ‘last acceptable prejudice” – but ageing is also one of the fundamental markers of human progress, with a vast and growing demographic of people now living longer than ever. Given that, why are attitudes to age still so judgemental? And why is growing older for women in particular still seen as so negative?
