Ageing and Women's Homelessness, Fighting the bag lady syndrome

Australia is facing a tsunami of poverty amongst ageing female baby boomers that will directly affect their well-being, economic viability, and housing options. This paper sets out the key findings from research into older women and housing security in Australia. The aim is to raise key questions that need to be considered, and propose further action to be taken, in developing viable housing options for this growing group of older women in danger of homelessness.
