It’s not the passage of time that makes it so hard to get older. It’s ageism, a prejudice that pits us against our future selves — and each other. Ashton Applewhite urges us to dismantle the dread and mobilize against the last socially acceptable prejudice. “Aging is not a problem to be fixed or a disease to be cured,” she says. “It is a natural, powerful, lifelong process that unites us all.”
Ashton Applewhite is the author of the blog Yo, Is This Ageist? and the renowned book , This Chair Rocks, A Manifesto Against Ageism. She is a widely recognized expert on ageism, was named Influencer of the Year by the PBS site Next Avenue, and speaks widely on aging and ageism.
