Education in Later Life: The Case of Older Women.
Harold, Sharon
Educational Gerontology, v18 n5 p511-27 Jul-Aug 1992
Older women's economic, social, and personal resources are more vulnerable, which the predominantly leisure-oriented perspective of older adult education does not address. Education for older women should help foster social and political identity, develop economic equity, and negotiate later-life transitions. (SK)
