The ageist language, however casual, keeps alive the myth that life after 40 must be worse than we expect. To change the way we think about ageing, we need to change the way we talk about ageing. So, let’s start paying closer attention to the language we use and hear every day.

This time the lifestyle journalist, Michela Di Carlo, founder and editor of crunchytales.com, the first illustrated online magazine for those ladies who don’t let age define them, will bring our attention to the latest ‘Ageist Britain Report’ results and the power of casual ageism language on triggering stereotypes.

Running the event ‘Crunchy Talks: Tales From Midlife Journeys’, Michela will shine a spotlight on the issue of casual ageism and the impact it has on our society, with the help of a diverse panel of inspirational women, from different backgrounds and expertise.
