As we grow older we may face stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination because of our age.
Being penalised simply for ageing has got to end.
Let’s first talk about rights.
Some people think we don’t need dedicated rights for older people.
They claim that our existing human rights – to life, liberty, freedom of opinion and expression – are enough.
That might make sense if all humans were treated the same.
But we know, don’t we, that all humans are not treated the same.
