Sarah Moreheart

Year of publication:


This is the fourth of five fact sheets produced in the Senior Women and Civic Engagement series which explores the participation of older women in their communities, the barriers and avenues to their participation, and how their intersectional identities shape their involvement.

This fourth fact sheet examines how older women’s needs and perspectives are overlooked and underrepresented in civic engagement activities and organizations despite making up most of the senior population.
