A REMARKABLE CONVERSATION ABOUT AGING
We talk a lot about the impact that society’s devaluing of age has on us as older people, but how does it affect young women in their 20s and 30s? If you haven’t been spending time with Gen Y lately, you might be surprised – not just by how significantly the subject of aging factors into the way the women in this video think about themselves, but also by how thoughtfully they – as well as the video’s older participants – approach the topic.
“I don’t have a fear of aging. But there is this fear of becoming invisible,” one young women says, “and I think these are becoming one and the same in our society. That terrifies me.” The video is one of several in a series of conversations created by the site SoulPancake in partnership with Darling Magazine.
