Miriam L. Reibold
“It's time for us old women to rip to shreds the veil of invisibility that has encased us. We have to fight the societal stereotype that keeps us on the periphery, outside the mainstream. We have experience to offer, judgment, wisdom, balance and charm.”
“... younger and middle-aged people need to grow up about growing up. ... They think if they don't notice us, they can continue to believe that they'll never die. Old people remind them that they're mortal.”
“If you want to understand some of the attitudes we have in America about women or old people, study fairy tales.”
“The word 'old' has come to mean obsolete. On the other hand, our culture values aged wine and antiques. It's time we write our own job description.”
“Old age isn't a disease; it's another stage of life.”
Miriam L. Reibold, U.S. activist
(1917 - 2012)
