Invisible Woman

I do like the Invisible Woman column in The Guardian:

This is a plea to the marketing and media industries to give older women a break. Stop basing everything you do on the assumption that we’re all embittered old hags, spending every waking moment yearning for lost youth. Do not think for a moment that we believe the manufactured myth that ageing is a problem to be solved, and please stop treating the entirely natural process of ageing as though it is a crime, a personal failing or a disease with a cure – it isn’t.


The comments are worth a read too.
