Although now at 77 I do look ‘old’, the folds on my face, my gait, and my white hair, I did not at the age of 60 when I retired. It is the white hair that have signalled me as an old woman and because of this I have noticed ageist behaviour towards me even before I retired at 60. Of course my interest in the cinema and my feminism confirmed my personal feelings. I refer you to my blog http://www.olderwomaninfeaturefilms.wordpress.com
Reading Morganroth Gullette’s Agewise this year notched my consciousness one degree higher and instead of accepting the situation I decided to write this diary.
