No retirement

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

Women are often threatened by poverty in old age, especially in cities with high rents. How do they manage with little money? What strategies do they develop in order to still participate in social and cultural life? Women from different social milieus tell us about this. The analysis of these reports makes it clear how urgently necessary a political and social change is needed in our well-established social systems.
