Germaine Greer:Old Women & Young Feminism

You speak words of truth here. The unacknowledged “age of irrelevance “. I remember being so shocked when I realised I had appeared to have literally become invisible in many places in daily life. I saw it as being presented with a choice, acquiescence or fight………..I chose fight. It really is true that older women become even more radical. And part of that for me is the discovery that many people and things around me are actually irrelevant to me and my life and I have the power to step away from them.
