Let’s face it: Ageism is a thing. It’s an overlooked form of discrimination that makes ageing an issue, when it should, in fact, not be an issue at all. Embracing your body changes, not settling for age-appropriate stereotypes like dressing your age is part of everyday ageism criticism, and it’s time we celebrate the differences that make the difference with women of all ages.
This season, we want to celebrate the differences that make the difference, so we asked four #WomenOfStyleTheory–in their 20s, 30s and 40s–about embracing the beauty of their age and defying the supposed limits of their age.
Meet Monica, Samantha, Sarah and Philomena.
Myth: You can pursue a career and make the big career leaps only when you’re younger. It’s too risky for successful mid-life career switches!
Instead of letting the circumstances and pessimistic thinking set her back, Philomena decided to make a greater difference and purpose with the 23 years of experience and skills she has honed.
Myth: A young woman has to choose between career, family, and life. She can’t be diverse and have it all, successfully, at the same time.
She’s not one to take stereotypes and societal expectations at face value. Meet Monica, our effervescent personality who juggles work, acting, and living her best life!
Myth: How you live your 20s will determine your life in the 30s.
An advocate of taking charge of your time, including the time taken to find your voice, meet Sarah who lives by the mantra that you should own your journey and be “the CEO of your life”.
Myth: Being young means you’re inexperienced and not wise enough to discern for yourself.
Led by passion and encouraged by actions, there’s no saying what Samantha wouldn’t do for the causes she fiercely believes in. Young age and newness will not hold her back.
