Revisioning Aging: Empowerment of Older Women

Synopsis

"Revisioning Aging is a multidisciplinary collection of writings that challenges the dominant social constructions that devalue and discriminate against older women. The aim of this book is to deconstruct the limiting images, attitudes, discourses, and practices surrounding aging that currently prevail and to construct alternative diverse options and possibilities for older women to participate in creating more equitable social and material conditions for themselves. This is achieved by bringing together different disciplinary insights in a range of forms and styles that are presented in the book's three sections."
