'Gender' and 'ageing' have become the core of any genuine development concern, both at the national and the international level. Demographic trends have made 'population ageing' inevitable in almost every country. Problems that confront ageing women have their origins, in part, in early life. In India, the problems of ageing women are due to the widespread perceptions of the inferior status of a woman throughout her life. This book is a vivid micro-level analysis of various issues of ageing in India, from gender perspectives with focus on the lifestyle, needs, and problems of urban-aged women across various income categories.
