No retirement?

  • How women deal with poverty in old age
  • In dialogue

Women are often at risk of poverty in old age, especially in cities with high rents.
In the course of the Corona crisis, poverty among women in old age is becoming even more acute and a political and social change of our well-rehearsed social systems seems inevitable.
How do they cope with little money? What strategies do they develop in order to nevertheless participate in social and cultural life? Women from different social milieus talk about this.
