This booklet aims to raise awareness about specific issues older women face both in Ireland and in developing countries. It describes how older women face similar challenges wherever they are from. In both contexts they suffer both age and gender discrimination. In raising awareness about the intersecting inequalities older women face, the information presented here provides an important starting point for those who want to know more about these issues.

It includes comparative case studies between Ireland and Uganda.
