Over the Hill: Reflections on Ageism Between Women ebook
by Baba Copper
Ageism, not aging, oppresses us," Copper writes. We are oppressed by other women and we oppress ourselves. Copper accuses the women's movement as well as professionals who provide services for the elderly.
Ageism, not aging, oppresses us," Copper writes. She says the effect of making decisions for them and "servicing" their needs renders old people powerless. Ageism can be defeated only by naming it, resisting it and redefining our understanding of it. Growing old must become accepted and celebrated instead of feared and rejected.
I really appreciated this book. It goes beyond addressing how society at large perpetuates ageism and details the ways in which feminism and women's movements have implicitly worked in ageist frameworks and how we can move beyond them.

Agerelated discrimination is particularly prevalent in the United States. Some factors that contribute to agerelated bias and discrimination are the fear of old age and death, the focus of society on youth, and the concept of productivity. However, in other parts of the world, such as Asia and the Middle East, aging increases a person's status in society. This is in part due to a difference in the way death is viewed, and the older person's involvement in society. Copper B (1988) Over the hill: reflections on ageism between women.

Baba Copper is furious, and rightfully so, at the treatment society gives older women. Older women are disempowered and she asks who benefits from this displacement of power. Ageism, not aging, oppresses us," Copper writes. They're seen as evil (as in mothers-in-law) or as useful servants (doting grandmothers), she claims. Recently Viewed and Featured.
