The articles by noted scholars and social activists address issues dealing with the elderly women in India. Viewing their status in the country, they analyse their rights and the denial of these, their nutrition and health care, their safety and protection, capacity building of elderly women, and fostering self-reliance in them. They look into making available microfinance services for them. They study the impact of the national policy on them and examine the role of science and technology in bringing about their welfare. They take up the problems of specific groups among them for closer scrutiny, such as the diabetic elderly and the aged women of the armed forces.
