"Our culture is fearful of ageing," said Franklin, "and especially ageing women. I say, 'Stop apologising for getting older. Embrace it.' I want young women to see that beauty ages beautifully and there is no need to feel that getting older is something that has to be medicated, managed with surgery or be obsessed about."

    http://www.pinterest.com/pi... This is what I am talking about. I really don't see how "feminism" figures in here because there is judgment laid on men over their appearance as well. I was merely pointing out that there is beauty in all if you are willing to see it. And yes, I sure as heck think that your attitude shows in how you look.

    How we "look" is not necessarily defined by features, but rather, countenance. I've seen women born with natural good looks, as far as features go, but their countenance is anything but beautiful. I think that is the thing to which Kathryn was alluding

    i have to comment, just to tell you Denise how much I enjoyed your use of the word countenance! It is not often used anymore, but so appropriate and descriptive!
