Today Pamela Scully tweets “Hollywood ‘Still Refuses to Let Actresses Age at all’ and gives this blog address: http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/2013/09/19/wrinkle-washed-female-faces-in-film-marketing/
In this blog Doug Barry writes about Susan Sontag and quotes her.
“The Double Standard of Aging” was published in The Saturday Review a fairly long time ago (41 years this weekend, actually) .
Have things changed as I was saying a few days ago? The four posters that the Jezebel site gives as an example are very telling of the enduring sexism/ageism of cinematic images. But more disturbing is the same prejudices expressed in some of the comments on that blog.
plus ca change!!!!!!!!
