The Women InThe World Summit, founded by author and editor Tina Brown in 2010, just wrapped it's ninth year's event in New York City. One of the panels, entitled "Beat the Clock," featured a discussion on age and aging, which was moderated by CBS 60 Minutes correspondent, Lesley Stahl, and included panelists Sheila Nevins, executive producer and former president of HBO Documentary Films and author of "You Don't Look Your Age and Other Fairy Tales", Michaela Angela Davis, image activist and writer, 69-year-old model Maye Musk (recently named the face of CoverGirl, and Markus Strobel, president, Global Skin and Personal Care at Proctor & Gamble, who commented that "77 per cent of women feel they are unfairly judged by their age." He also played a clip from an Olay “Live Ageless” campaign that shows women whose faces fall when they were told they looked good for their age.
Some great commentary came from Davis, who identifies as not an old but as a "grown-ass woman," who said "I've been waiting to be a grown-ass woman all my life. I don't measure my life in time. I measure it in experience."
