William D. Jeffrey

This paper explores the psychodynamics that link prejudice toward the aged and toward women. Men use denial to avoid anxiety about vulnerability, powerlessness, and death. The prejudice against the elderly is obvious; they are reminders of aging and death. The prejudice against women is based on unconscious dynamics; women are reminders of the preoedipal mother toward whom destructive fantasies were projected, resulting in the fear of abandonment and death by the all-powerful woman.
