dc.description Report en_US
dc.description.abstract This three-part special report takes a closer look at the lives of older women to better understand the challenges they face and how we can address them. The first section explores why a significant portion of older women live near or in poverty, while also shedding light on intersectional issues that make women of color and LGBTQ women even more likely to age in poverty than their white counterparts. The second section discusses important anti-poverty programs that older women rely on, and the third lays out specific policy recommendations for increasing women’s economic security and access to supports as they get older. [CVRL Note: the report identifies that one cause of poverty among older women is domestic violence, discussed on page 10 of the report. ] (Author Abstract) en_US
