Elderly Women in the Netherlands

Dr. Maria Poppe

Abstract


In politics, the media and the public eye, the "older woman" is under regular discussion. That older women can be an active group could be seen in a recent edition of the magazine Rails (a consumer publication from the Dutch Railway) entitled "Old is in" with an eighty year old model on the cover. The eighty year old model illustrated with her sophisticated outfit the kind of classic tops, body stockings and singlets that will soon be available in the shops.
