Surveys have shown that women over 46 become "invisible". They get run into, overlooked, and feel it as well. Ever thought about all the botox, nips and tucks this generation so willingly undergoes? The efforts being made into looking younger?
Supposedly, it is a genetic thing, men's brains wired to look at young fertile women and oversee the older ones.
Funnily enough, about the time women turn 60, they become a little more visible again, but then as 'old ladies', senior citizens. Although these days 60-year olds are still fit and active, our brains still haven't caught up with the new reality.
So I suppose the only thing I can do is stand tall, take and fill my space, and make sure I am not overlooked.
