"The Double Standard of Aging" by Susan Sontag on Media Watch (published in 1979… how slow things are to change!) 

"[Women] can let themselves age naturally and without embarrassment,  actively protesting and disobeying the convention that stem from this  society’s double standard about aging. Instead of being girls, girls as  long as possible, who then age humiliatingly into middle-aged women,  they can become women much earlier-and remain active adults, enjoying  the long, erotic career which women are capable, far longer. Women  should allow their faces to show the lives they have lived. Women should  tell the truth."
