Help Age publishes discussion paper on violence against older women

Help Age had published a discussion paper on violence experienced by older women. The paper highlights the frequency with which older persons, especially older women, are subjected to violence, abuse, and neglect, and explores the extent to which violence resulting from the intersections between sex and old age are addressed in international, regional, and national legal frameworks. Finally, it calls for greater engagement of researchers, activists, and policy makers to prevent and address violence against older women.
