Fighting Ageism

written by alison November 21, 2013

Meet 6 extraordinary women, all above the age of 70, fighting ageism and refusing to let stereotypes influence their sense of fashion and style. Forgo the latest trends; these women embrace unconventional dressing and, in effect, are re-defining old age. This inspiring documentary from award-winning director Sue Bourne is a must see. No longer is personal style defined by age. xxAG
