Aging shows no mercy to our hands. The unforgiving light of a manicure illuminates our wrinkles, our bulging veins, and our prominent joints, all undeniable reminders that we are getting old. Often, the gap between how we feel as we age and what we see in our various reflections can feel surreal.
The significance of physical appearance for both sexes has always been different. For men, attractiveness is an advantage. For women, it is expected. Men have physiques that imply size, strength, or athleticism. Women have figures alluding to shapeliness and sexuality. Men are hunks, toned, and authoritative. Women are thin or voluptuous, diminutive, or desirable.
Factually and anecdotally, the natural physical changes that accompany aging for both genders impact women more than men, and that means it is harder for women to find new jobs, lovers, and even friends.
The topic of women and aging is not only popular, but important to talk about and talk through.
