The Paradox of the Advantaged Elder and the Feminization of Poverty.
Gonyea, Judith G.
Social Work, v39 n1 p35-41 Jan 1994
Explores emergence of concepts of advantaged elder and feminization of poverty. Calls it paradox that society has simultaneously embraced these two concepts when elderly population, especially subpopulation of those who are very old, is overwhelmingly female. Examines theoretical shortcomings of both concepts and proposes broader model of economic well-being that emphasizes interactive nature of gender, race, and class. (Author/NB)
