What terms do you hate the most when women over 50 are referred to?
There seems to be a tendency for the media to have to attribute labels to women over 50. We have already debated the use of ‘olderpreneur’ given to those over 50 setting up businesses, but what other labels annoy you?
One reader wrote in to say that she hates the phrase ‘women of a certain age’. Another hated ‘Swofties’ (single women over 50). And everyone seems to take exception to being referred to as an ‘old biddy’!
What descriptions of women over 50 do you hate most?
What phrases to describe women over 50 do you hate (or like) and do we really need to be labelled at all?
Would love your views on this one!!
