This book brings together international research from scholars and activists on the forms of violence that older women experience into a unique, comprehensive two-volume set. This first volume consolidates the research on the forms, causes and extent of different forms of violence against older women. It considers the theoretical limitations of our understandings and charts the gaps in empirical and theoretical research in this area and how this has hindered effective policy and practice responses to violence against older women. Taken together, this volume offers an important starting point from which future research can draw to address the gaps in knowledge and evidence. It also highlights issues that are particular to older women’s experiences of violence compared with younger women. It highlights gaps in existing research and suggests a future research agenda and implications for practitioners. It will be of interest to researchers in social and health care, gerontology, sociology and social policy, feminist research and criminology.
