Résumé :

Has the Sisterhood forgotten older women? is a timely and insightful collection of essays to mark International Women's Day on the 8th March 2013. It brings together contributions from across the academic, policy, political and voluntary sectors to debate the opportunities and challenges for older women at the national and Global level. The Compendium also asks if our relatively recent female demographic dividend has caught feminists and indeed the wider community by surprise.
Essential reading for anyone interested in the subject of ageing and gender, this Compendium of essays presents opinions from a range of experts on subjects as diverse as finances, work, social isolation and loneliness, care and carers, health and wellbeing and the current invisibility of older women on the international development agenda. It represents a necessary 'stocktake', asking just how far we need to travel to advance the cause of older women and provides a platform for future action and development. While the aspirations, experiences and reflections expressed by the authors differ, they are arguably all united by a widespread dissatisfaction with the current status quo and the need for further action.
Contributors include: Lynne Berry, Jane Ashcroft, Sheila Gilmore MP, Ros Altmann, Geraldine Bedell, Michelle Mitchell, Heléna Herklots, Jack Watters, Laura Ferguson, Marina Yannakoudakis MEP and Miriam Bernard and a foreword from Baroness Sally Greengross.
