Insights on Aging: Aging Is a Feminist Issue

Sharon Dornberg-Lee, LCSW
Clinical Supervisor, CJE Counseling Services

Prominent feminists such as Simone de Beauvoir and Betty Friedan have tackled the issue of aging as a feminist issue. More recently, popular shows such as Grace & Frankie have taken a humorous look at this issue. But what are the implications of this for the everyday lives of women as they grow older? How can a gender lens help to illuminate the challenges of aging? How do societal expectations of women “of a certain age” affect one’s perceptions of self? This program will explore those questions and attendees will be invited to join in a discussion of how aging and gender intersect.
