What does a successful Age Liberation movement look like to you? Most older adults have come face to face with age bias. You likely have, too. It may range from small, systemic acts that embarrassed or dismissed you, or cringe-worthy jokes about ageing, to big ones that caused hurt or harm, like forced retirement and biased hiring practices. Sound familiar? Think about your own stories and those of others you know; then ask yourself, “isn’t it time for an Age Liberation movement?”
Age equity is a social justice issue. It’s more relevant than ever, especially in a world that is ageing rapidly. Ageing adults deserve to be respected and accorded the same rights as others. It’s going to take a movement to set the record straight.
