    Inhaltsangabe

    Do you see women your age portrayed as puttering gardeners and docile grannies? Do you feel bombarded by anti-aging products that insist you must "defy" getting older? Do you feel invisible in professional and social situations? And have you had enough, and are you ready to challenge the intertwining of sexism and ageism in our culture?

    Susan Douglas knows that you are not alone. She declares it is time now for the largest female generation over 50 to reinvent what it means to be an older woman and to challenge the outdated stereotypes - think doddering or shrewish - that Hollywood and TV have assigned them. She zones in on how the anti-aging cosmetics industry targets older and younger women alike with their products, and how Big Pharma ads equate getting older with disease and decline. Douglas exposes the ageism that mature women face at work and why conservatives' decades-long attacks on Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare disproportionately affect women.

    With a sharp sense of justice and fresh wit, In Our Prime sees a social movement emerging that may help to create a different view of and life for older women. Ultimately, Douglas calls on women of all ages to join together now to fight against gendered ageism, to secure our country's financial safety net, and to make a brighter, more welcome future for older women.
