On the news today there was a study revealed that said woman turn invisible to society about the age of 50. This means they are not oggled by men or reacted to when walking down the street. They are not served in pubs unless they are the only one at the bar.
I can relate to this but I think I have turned invisible a decade early. If I go into a take-away to collect a meal I am served last over any man or young woman who comes in. I get looked passed when stood waiting to be served in a bar, or waiting for my daughters feet to be measured. My older kids and husband see me as a house keeper rather than a woman.
I never had this problem as a younger woman, I had no problem attracting the attention of a bar man!
Any body else feel like this?
