CFP: National Women's Studies Association Journal (NWSA Journal)

Special Issue on Aging, Ageism, and Old Age, Spring 2006

Feminist theorists of old age, such as Baba Copper, Barbara Macdonald,
Cynthia Rich, and Margaret Cruikshank have charged that women's studies and
the feminist movement have, in large part, ignored the issue of aging. In a
field in which so many other aspects of body-based identity are recognized,
debated, de- and re-constructed, and challenged, the subject of old age
remains relatively unexamined and untheorized - nearly taboo.
