The internet defines Dignity as:
the state or quality or being worthy of honor or respect
a sense of pride in oneself; self respect
The sad truth is that aging is not looked at with dignity in our society. Advertising, movies and television, product design- it is all geared for younger generations. But then there are the facts.
While those over 50 make up only 32% of the US population, they control 77% of the net worth with almost 46 trillion in wealth. Doesn't seem like such a good idea to cater to the younger set now does it?
It is often assumed that as people get older they don't care about style or trying new things. Again, this is simply not the case. As evidenced by couture fashion brand Celine's choice of 80 year old author Joan Didion as the star of their new ad campaign, style is for everyone.
