Elderly Women: A Study of the Unorganised Sector

P.J. Reddy (Author) D. Usha Rani (Author) R. Geetha Gowri (Author)
Synopsis This ground breaking book contributes to the understanding of ageing and widowhood in the context of problems and issues of a larger social order. Ageing and marital status put women in India in a disadvantageous position who in general are subject to social and economic marginalisation and are victimised by their own family. They are viewed only as a problem and are neglected continuously. These women constitute a special concern group, especially as the proportion of widow among the elderly is high. The life of the aged widows who are economically less active and relatively more dependent is miserable and calls for effective and practical remedial measures. Various avenues have to be sought for fulfilling the financial and other needs of the elderly widowed women. This body of work gives a critical perspective of the status enjoyed by the elderly widowed women in the unorganised sector, the stress they face and the security offered to them by the family and society.
