I’m Not Sorry: The Case of Madonna and Women Ageing

Madonna ageing and face Straight to the Comments Podcast

This week we are talking about the controversy surrounding Madonna's appearance at the Grammys. Was it really all about ageism and misogyny as she claims?

We also examine the online fascination with Hollywood female stars who are "ageing gracefully", such as Helen Mirren. But what does "ageing gracefully" mean? And do women become invisible once they turn 45?

Join us as we get into botox and plastic surgery, the Acting Your Age Campaign, the underrepresentation of older women on screen, and even ageism in the workplace, as we look at what it means for women to age publicly.
