When Old Age Became a Social Problem, Women Were Left Behind.
Rodeheaver, Dean
Gerontologist, v27 n6 p741-46 Dec 1987
Social policies and programs for aged are characterized by failure to recognize that females predominate among elderly persons. Masculine bias toward independence and disregard for feminine values of relatedness are considered in relation to studies of interdependence of elderly, their families, and communities. Foundations of this bias are found in history of old age as social problem. (Author)
