What’s it about?

Recent evidence suggests life stress over the life course disproportionately negatively impacts wellbeing, cognition and health in older women. Older women across Europe have been shown to have more diverse and less regular employment histories than men and have been shown to face significant challenges as older women in navigating their work life balance. Furthermore, in the UK women’s pension age has recently been harmonised, older women are more likely to extend their working life and are disproportionately affected by inequalities across the life course. This study aims to gain insights into the experiences of women aged 60 and over in the workplace in Greater Manchester, the impact of the cost-of-living crisis and highlight the barriers and facilitators to wellbeing at work.
