there is another aspect to the issue, though: in my field, I have to compete for jobs with younger people. The issue has less to do with beauty than with being perceived as out of date, having less stamina or ability/willingness to put in long hours, being less flexible, or being less quick and adaptable. All those are stereotypes, but believe me, in a field that is really competitive I can't afford to fall victim to any stereotype. I'm a top worker and I spend my own time and money keeping up with technology and developments in the field: I just have to borrow a friend's children to keep me up to speed on things like tweet adn twitter! But that alone will not keep me in the game if I'm perceived as being out of date. I color my hair because aside from the grey hair, I do look 15-20 years younger than my age - I'm really on top of the sunscreen thing, and i keep my weight down - and I can't afford to be refused work because I look too much like "past my prime"!
