Anne Karpf is the first guest on the topic that Ashton Applewhite dubbed "aging while female."  Anne is a writer, sociologist, and award-winning journalist who teaches at London Metropolitan University and has written a number of books including How to Age.  She advises us to challenge ageist language because otherwise we internalize it.  She notes, "That's the most pernicious form of ageism - the one you impose upon yourself."
