Do You Think Looking Older Affects Your Career?


Madame Suzanne Noël was an early twentieth-century Parisian cosmetic and plastic surgeon. She believed that face lifts were a necessity in the workplace to ensure that women didn't lose their jobs to younger females. She felt that women were at risk of losing respect, power and their status because of their aging appearance.

Decades later, we haven't gotten past aging. Charla Krupp's latest book, How Not to Look Old, encourages women to get Botox so they're not overlooked in the workplace. (Personally, I'm one to demand change within a messed-up system rather than accommodate it.) Was Madame Noël right? Do you think that aging women face discrimination because of their looks? If so, what should be done about it?
