Williamson, Alan
Educational Gerontology, v26 n1 p49-66 Jan-Feb 2000
Comparison of 41 female and 15 male older adults participating in Universities of the Third Age found the genders approach retirement differently. Women want to experience freedom and make up for lost opportunities; men prefer to "sit." However, men with active interests before retirement continued activity in the Third Age. (SK)
