Additional Information

This collection of original essays opens up a novel area of inquiry: the distinctively ethical dimension of women's experiences of aging. Fifteen distinguished contributors here explore assumptions, experiences, practices, and public policies that affect women's well-being and dignity in later life. The book brings to the study of women's aging a reflective dimension missing from the empirical work that has predominated to date. Ethical studies of aging have so far failed to emphasize gender. And feminist ethics has neglected older women, even when emphasizing other dimensions of 'difference.' Finally work on aging in all fields has focused on the elderly, while this volume sees aging as an extended process of negotiating personal and social change.

Every now and then a book appears which responds to a real need, even if you didn't know the need existed. This book breaks new ground on the issue of aging and women. The studies on images of women and how it affects women aging are especially good. Not all is perfect. Many claims are made for the differences between male aging and female aging, but little proof is given. The religious issues which surround aging are strangely absent. Still, this is a first and a scholarly one.
