About Ashton

Ashton Applewhite is a best-selling writer and award-winning journalist who started blogging on the subject of ageism in 2007 when she began to wonder, 'why is our view of late life so unrelievedly grim when the lived reality is so different?' She launched This Chair Rocks and began speaking widely on the subject in 2012.  During that time she was named a Knight Fellow, a New York Times Fellow, and a fellow at Yale Law School. And in 2015 Ashton was included in a list of 100 inspiring women—along with Arundhati Roy, Aung Sang Suu Kyi, Germaine Greer, Naomi Klein, Pussy Riot, and other remarkable activists—who are committed to social change.
