Book review

Revisioning Aging is a multidisciplinary collection of writings that challenges the dominant social constructions that devalue and discriminate against older women. The aim of this book is to deconstruct the limiting images, attitudes, discourses, and practices surrounding aging that currently prevail and to construct alternative diverse options and possibilities for older women to participate in creating more equitable social and material conditions for themselves. This is achieved by bringing together different disciplinary insights in a range of forms and styles that are presented in the book's three sections.
The first section contains chapters showing how prevailing social, political, economic, and discursive contexts have shaped the experience of aging for women. The second section looks at specific aspects of older women's lives: work (paid and unpaid), living space, and health. The final section begins a reconstruction of the experience of aging for women presenting positive and empowering images, languages, and actions that have made and will make a difference in women's lives.
