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 8th session of UN Open-ended Working Group on Ageing in July 2017.
This report is result of the consultation with about 250 older women from 19 countries. It presents the themes and issues raised by the participants using their own words, expressions and phrases. Their responses have not been weighted in any way. In light of the responses, recommendations have been made on the normative framework of each of the two rights.
