I went to a wonderful presentation at UBC by Lillian Zimmerman the author of: Bag Lady or Powerhouse-A RoadMap for Midlife (boomer) Women. She described in detail the layers of discrimination suffered by women in their later years. From greeting cards to degrading comments by journalists about powerful women, (apparently Hilary Clinton has disgusting and revolting ankles!) she reminded us that misogyny is alive and well in North America. »Lillian maintains a great sense of humour (amazingly!) while urging us young-ones (she is in her eighties) to stand up and take action to fight discrimination, ageism and sexism. She calls us boomers the missing revolution. Join me in standing up by blogging here.
