Chronologically Gifted celebrates its fourth anniversary with a look back at some of our favorite interviews.  Anne Karpf is a British writer, award-winning journalist, sociologist, scholar, and teacher.  Her latest book is How to Age.  Anne spoke on the topic of aging while female.  She stated, "There is such a degree of age shame and age shaming that goes on in both countries (US and UK)...We have to challenge the language, protesting when people make ageist comments because we internalize that kind of language and turn it back on ourselves.  That's the most pernicious form of ageism: the one that you impose upon yourself."
