Older Women’s Universal Right to Economic Security

24 March 2022 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM UTC-5


Older Women’s Universal Right to Economic Security

24 March, 14:00-15:30 NY time


Older women face disproportionate economic empowerment challenges. Ageism, barriers to re-skilling, unpaid caregiving are some key challenges. This session will make real the implication of these challenges in lives of older women, discuss the benefits of a human rights-based approach in developing programs and policies for economic empowerment of older women and make the connection on why recognition of older women as rights holders are critical to economic empowerment, dignity and well-being of older women worldwide.

Organized by  Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People
