older man and woman talking

Age and gender

Martina Brandt and Alina Schmitz have published an article in the "Handbook social work and age" [only in German], edited by Kirsten Aner and Ute Karl. In their article "Alter und Geschlecht" (Age and Gender), they investigate the question of whether old age is still "female". In addition, they explain differences in life situations between older women and older men. In particular, the authors address health inequalities and social support networks of women and men in old age.
