 Ashton Applewhite Biography

Ashton Applewhite is a writer and activist based in New York.

In her book This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism, Applewhite declares that it’s time to dismantle the last acceptable prejudice; it’s time for age pride. In her candid talks—as she does on her blog, "This Chair Rocks", and her Q&A Tumblr, "Yo, Is This Ageist?" — she debunks our culture’s most pervasive myths about getting older. And with her funny, straight-talking approach, she helps audiences realize the often-overlooked benefits of advanced age, championing the need for greater age-based diversity in the workplace and our institutions.

In 2016, Applewhite joined the PBS site Next Avenue’s annual list of 50 Influencers in Aging as their Influencer of the Year. She has been recognized by The New York Times, NPR, and the American Society on Aging as an expert on ageism. She has written for Harper’s, Playboy, and The New York Times. And she speaks widely, at venues that have ranged from universities and community centers to the Library of Congress, United Nations, and the TED2017 mainstage—where she received a standing ovation.

Her first serious book, Cutting Loose: Why Women Who End Their Marriages Do So Well, was published by HarperCollins in 1997. It was inspired by the puzzlement: why was our notion of women’s lives after divorce so different from the happy and energized reality? Ms. magazine called it “rocket fuel for launching new lives.” Writing under the name Blanche Knott, Applewhite is also the author of the humor collection Truly Tasteless Jokes, a best-selling paperback of 1982.
