Too often, older women are seen as victims, but I know lots of formidable women who have marvellous jobs as well as a full erotic life, and children and friends and family.
I have yet to see a drama that puts forward women who are successful and have a family. Women are nearly always seen as victims.
Thank God we're not like America: everyone wants to look like they're 20. In Europe we admire grown-up women. I think men revere older women.
