Still image from What's Age Got To Do With It?

Addresses the verbal, physical, sexual, and financial abuse that many older women face from spouses, adult children, and other family members. Looks at how emotional and psychological abuse erodes feelings of self-worth over time. Documents the fact that domestic violence in later years is usually a continuation of long-term abuse. Uses vignettes to identify some of the issues and situations that prevent older women from seeking help, including language barriers, cultural taboos, lack of economic resources, and geographic isolation.
