The study looks at issues such as education, employment, pension rights and good health care. It considers how these have all been very different for this generation of older women in comparison to younger generations. We looked at how older women today have been influenced by the Irish state’s earlier insistence that the place of women was in the home.
The study highlights the coping skills of older women, and the traditions of self-help and informal organising for mutual support.

How we did the study
This was a very interesting experience for both of us as it was the first time we had carried out a piece of research involving older women. Travelling around the country meeting different groups and individuals gave us a valuable insight into the network but also gave us an understanding of the issues that affect older women. researcher.
