Age discrimination exists and it’s time to challenge stereotypes, smashing preconceptions about ageing and making women in their middle age more visible.

Part of the Storyhouse Women Annual Programme, ‘Crunchy Talks – Tales from Midlife Journeys’ is a special project aiming to empower women feeling stuck in the middle of their journey. Women who need to be seen, heard and celebrated.

Led by the lifestyle journalist Michela Di Carlo, founder of crunchytales.com a digital illustrated magazine ‘for those ladies who don’t let age define them’, the event wants to help women rethink the way they approach midlife.

Michela will interview a panel of inspirational women from different backgrounds on the topic of various midlife issues, ageing and repurpose in life. Followed by Q&A.

Speakers include:

Emma Rees (Professor of Literature and Gender Studies at the University of Chester, Director of the Institute of Gender Studies), Raluca Radulescu (Professor in Medieval Literature at Bangor University and Director of theCentre for Arthurian Studies), Valentina Harris (celebrity chef and award-winning author, former President of the London chapter of Les Dames D’Escoffier), Vinitra

Mishra (Consultant in clinical biochemistry and metabolic medicine in the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital NHS trust), Izzy Grey (Hospitality Guru and Pr Wiz).
