Change begins with consciousness-raising, the tool that catalyzed the women’s movement. Women came together in the 1970s, compared stories, and realized that the obstacles they were facing — not getting heard, or hired, or respected — weren’t personal misfortunes but widely shared political problems that required collective action. Social change occurs only as we take that awareness out into the world and directly and explicitly confront the ageism that diminishes and segregates older Americans in every arena.
