Ageivism roundtable

With contributions by Katrien De Graeve, Anja Meulenbelt, Ryan Backer, Sara De Vuyst, Katrien Jacobs and Aagje Swinnen

Katrien De Graeve has invited activists and scholars to reflect on the issue of ageism and age activism. This resulted in a roundtable, published in the Journal of Diversity and Gender Studies (DiGeSt), which aims to raise awareness of older women’s strategies of resistance and activism that may inspire new perceptions and experiences of ageing. The full text of the roundtable can be downloaded through the link below.
