Entitled to the same rights focuses on older women's right to non-discrimination and equality, and their right to freedom from violence, abuse and neglect, reflecting the themes of discussion at the UN Open-ended Working Group on Ageing in July 2017.

Women from across 19 countries and in varying social and economic situations reported abuse, discrimination in different areas of their lives, including employment, healthcare and accessing financial services.''
