Branch Annual Meeting and Program

Gather and socialize: 7:00 PM
Come to the Zoom Room early and chat with friends before the meeting begins.
Annual Meeting: 7:15 PM
Program: 7:45 PM
Topic: In Our Prime: How older women are reinventing the road ahead
Speaker: Susan J. Douglas
Susan Douglas will explain how American women over fifty, however visible and powerful, continue to be subjected to gendered ageism. She will emphasize the role of the media in stereotyping older women, rendering them invisible and urging them to “defy” aging, while also providing more visibility and opposition to ageist stereotypes by female celebrities, politicians and other public figures. She will end with a to-do list of how to move an anti-ageist agenda forward.
Susan J. Douglas is the Catherine Neafie Kellogg Professor and Arthur F. Thurnau Professor in the U-M Department of Communication and Media.
