Author Ashton Applewhite joins hosts Ann Diver-Stamnes and Pam Brown to discuss the topic of aging while female, a term she coined as part of her new lecture series.  Ashton wrote the book This Chair Rocks:  A Manifesto against Ageism.  In this first interview in a two part series, she notes in regard to ageism against women, "Until we mobilize and decide to shine a light on it, we perpetuate it, and we collude in our own marginalization."
