Labour Party Commission on Older Women 26/09/2013
It is great news to hear that the Look at Me! project is having an impact in the policy world. Along with colleagues in the Department of Sociological Studies at The University of Sheffield - Professor Alan Walker and Dr Liam Foster - Lorna submitted evidence from the Look at Me! project to the Harriet Harman/ Labour Party Commission on Older Women. We are very pleased to report that this evidence has been cited in the Interim Report (Sept 2013, p. 31). It reads: 'For women, the physical signs of ageing are frequently negatively stereotyped often becoming the butt of humour - the comic battleaxe or portrayed as victims'.
