Aging in women has traditionally been defined by the menopause, however it is often social and economic changes which are more important to women.
In Aging in Women Linda Gannon redresses the balance. From a feminist perspective, she critically reviews current research and provides a more comprehensive analysis of the psychological effects of life-span changes for older women. Some of the topics she explores include second careers, empty-nest, divorce, chronic illness, retirement and sexuality.
