Personal project: Ageism
Posted 12 months ago and submitted by Lisa Wee | Share link:

Ageism is discrimination against others or oneself based on age. Ageism is actually discriminating against our future self, especially being older. Older adults are often stereotyped as being slow, weak, feeble and frail.

Iris Apfel was the subject of an exhibit at The Costume Institute in The Metropolitan Museum of Art which ran from September 13, 2005 through January 22, 2006. Apfel was 84 when the show opened. Jane Goodall’s researched took 60 years which started when she was 26years old. Without Ruth Bader Ginsberg, women couldn’t sign a mortgage or have a bank account without a male co-signer.

Your vision for the book is unbelievable. I am just in awe of some of the things you came up with. The dog mapping of walking through the house and hangers in the closet. It is truly magical. (Holly Bonner - Blind mom monster detective) Everyone loves your enchanting artwork! The colors are wonderful. Our readers will love looking at the happy children and all the details. Thank you, Lisa, for a GREAT job on this project!! (Ladybug magazine)
