About Advantages of Age
One evening, there were five women around 50 (one over 60) sitting in a hot tub… There was the buzz of laughter and celebration. And different points of view. Not to mention outrageous stories. We found ourselves discussing how great we felt. And how at odds that was to the prevalent media and societal narrative. We felt like communally rebelling about this depressing age story that gets told over and over again. The sagging, the invisibility, the no shagging. No, we were adamant, this was not us nor our lives. We felt gloriously liberated by age and divested of the insecurities and doubts that plagued our younger years. We were five women who were out there and on it creatively. Like thousands of women out there, we do not obey the stereotypes. We started Advantages of Age to challenge and dialogue about this. Please join us. Men too.
