AnnotationIs there any justification for the ageism that permeates our language and society? This report on attitudes about age and elderly people looks at the assumptions made in the "seven deadly myths" about age and older people: chronology, ill health senility and mental deterioration, inflexible personality, rejection and isolation, misery, and unproductivity. Methods by which ageism can be fought are suggested. (RH).
