5 Insane Things Betty White Did After The Age Of 50

Our society is pretty skewed when it comes to the way we treat aging and those who do it (read: everyone). It’s especially tough for women, obviously, which is why we think it’s important to rewrite the narrative to reflect the true trajectory of a woman’s life, rather than the patriarchy’s version of events (you know, the one that says females start winding down after the geriatric age of 29). There is no better illustration of this than Betty White, who turns 95 today and has seen some of her most notable achievements well past the age of 50. She counts Red Vines, hot dogs and Taco Bell among her favorite foods and for that—and for all the achievements listed below—she is our forever heroine. (She also met the love of her life at 41—just sayin’!)
