iwanttobefree"Written by Jenny Horsman, this issue paper is intended as a tool to raise awareness about the abuse of older women. Although much of this data comes from Ontario, it is not intended as a description of abuse against older women in one particular region of Canada. It is designed to raise questions about what is revealed and what is concealed by different understandings of the issue and to examine ways of addressing the problem. (...)

This paper is part of the on-going work, in collaboration with Family Services of Toronto and the BC/Yukon Society of Transition Houses, on the abuse of older women."
