The inaugural issue of Salt magazine lists me as one of their “100 greatest change agents—women who have a hugely positive influence all over the world." I'm one of very few Americans and keep company with remarkable social justice and human rights activists, including Aung Sang Suu Kyi, Arundhati Roy, Pussy Riot, Germaine Greer, Jane Goodall, and Naomi Wolf. It's very exciting to see ageism on the world stage and have my work recognized in this way.
“Ashton Applewhite is on a crusade. A journalist and author, her mission is to raise awareness of ageism in America and get people young and old to join her in speaking out against it.”
