VintAGE: Celebrating Women Artists Over 40

VintAge 2010


The Coalition held an outstanding VintAGE event on March 1, 2010! We sold out the Symphony Space Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre, and everyone was bowled over by the performances and suitably impressed with the need for improvement to job opportunities for women over 40!

Choreographer Mercedes Ellington, actresses Betsy von Furstenberg and Anita Gillette, songwriters Gretchen Cryer and Nancy Ford, Ilene Kristen, and Shellen Lubin, the cast of "Women of a Certain Age" and more provided a vibrant evening of music, dance, theater and film enjoyed by all!  We rejoiced, commemorated and celebrated the achievements of women over the age of 40, and examined the not so secret world of women and ageism.

All ticket holders enjoyed our after-party at UnWined in Symphony Space.  Networking with other industry professionals dedicated to promoting the advancement of women and parity in the arts and media.

WHERE ARE WE NOW? IS AGEISM ON THE WANE OR HAS IT INTENSIFIED? 

Keep working women of a certain age off the endangered species list.

Have we come a long way, baby, only to be sidelined after the age of 40?
