Women and Aging: Young women face tremendous pressure to fit physical standards that mainstream society deems attractive. As women age, they have typically become invisible to the male gaze. But, with older women increasingly targeted by media, the goal of maintaining your 'beauty' and still being a sexual object as an older woman has become an option. Nicole Deagan and Ariana Barer explore this topic with Dr Vivian Diller, author of Face It: What Women Really Feel as Their Looks Change and Irene Tsepnopulous-Elhaimer, Executive Director of Women Against Violence Against Women Rape Crisis Centre.
Also featuring the hilarious comedy of Sarah Haskins http://current.com/groups/sarah-haskins/
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
