This Chair Rocks


Applewhite is a fierce and articulate opponent of ageism. Her This Chair Rocks Blog reflects the variety of her strategies to combat ageism, including policy analysis, book reviews, essays on aspects of the pro-aging movement, a clearinghouse of anti-ageism resources, and a new book, This Chair Rocks that brings together selected content from the Blog. Blog posts range from a July 2018 piece titled “Who is Going to Create a Better Narrative of old age in America,” that questions current theories about the so-called Longevity Economy, to a January 2019 Post by guest writer Jeannette Leardi on “Fighting Ageism Requires Long-Term Action”.
