17 Women Stand Up To Ageist Stereotypes In One Powerful Video

"I've never been more powerful than I am now."

Iconic women, including Gloria Steinem, Virginia Madsen and Lauren Hutton, and many others, have a powerful message for you: There's nothing wrong with getting older.

A film produced by Madsen and directed by her mother, Elaine Madsen, brings together 17 women, ages 64 to 99, to discuss what aging has meant for them. 

The film entitled "I Know A Woman Like That" is being publicly released May 10th, both digitally and on DVD, and the makers hope to show people that older women are not just "reclining in rocking chairs." The film was screened at a few film festivals, Virgil Films says, and is being made available to the general public for the first time.  

The trailer gives us just a glimpse of what the women had to say about growing older, Candid interviews with the women, across many decades of life, indicate that age is just a number.  

"There's a million other ways to look at life," Hutton says, shunning age as an indicator of one's happiness or success. 

Preach.
