Week 5 Discussion: Gendered Ageism
Must post first.
After reviewing this week’s learning resources, respond to the following items:
· Why is ageism considered the “most socially acceptable prejudice?” Provide an example of a time when you witnessed or experienced ageism.
· Explain the concepts of
multiple jeopardies/marginalizations as they relate to aging.
· What are some consequences of ageism, particularly as it relates to older women, older minorities, or older minority women?
· What measures can we take to reduce ageism?
Your responses should integrate what you have learned from across the readings. Use your best writing skills and be sure to include citations and a corresponding reference list in APA format to support your ideas.
