Older Women Count!

GRAN is committed to keeping a strong focus on older women in our advocacy work.

To this end, the Older Women Count!  resources have been developed by a dedicated group of our members to help us (and others) better understand the rights, strengths, contexts and concerns of older women in sub-Saharan Africa.  

The Older Women Count!  report:

Reviews relevant, up-to-date-information on older women in sub-Saharan Africa as it relates to GRAN’s work and current issues;

Provides the groundwork and rationale for the better integration of older women in advocating a feminist agenda that respects the rights of all ages; and

Suggests actions to protect and enhance the rights of older women and the vulnerable young people in their care. 

Please see the Resources box below for the full report, as well as an Executive Summary and info sheets.

 

While our intention is to make these documents available in French as soon as possible, our current translation resources are very limited.  We ask for your patience.
Notre objectif est de fournir nos textes en français.  Cependant, nous manquons de ressources et nous nous en excusons.  Ce sera donc un processus graduel.
