Women's retirement: policy implications of recent research
How should retirement programmes treat women? In Women's Retirement, the needs and problems of women who are retiring are researched, and the relationship of work history and employment status to retirement difficulties examined. Attitudes toward retirement among women of different population groups and the effects of retirement planning on adjustment are explored, as well as the differences between men and women. An important contribution to a new field, the book also carries an extensive bibliography of previous work.

'...will undoubtedly provide a useful reference source for gerontologists, and all those concerned with the conditions of women in retirement.' -- Ageing and Society, Vol 4 No 2, 1984
