So how, then, without realistic role models, are women supposed to embrace their maturity? It's a hard enough road to loving yourself at any age, but it's particularly difficult if aging women are almost totally absent from the public discourse. However, with grand dames like Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren, and Judi Dench still very much at the top of their game, maybe the paradigm is changing. Do you think we're moving toward a more full appreciation of female beauty, or are instances like this exhibit just a few twinkles in an otherwise very dark firmament?
