Researching Age and Multiple Discrimination
edited by Richard Ward and Bill Bytheway

Across Europe a rights based agenda has dominated recent efforts to tackle inequality. This approach relies on indentity categories, such as 'older people', and is governed by them. Yet our everyday lives, including experiences of discrimination rarely unfold to neat categories of social difference. This report considers some of the problems associated with certain categories that apply to later life. It supports thinking about how to undertake research into discrimination and ageing and how to involve older people as part of that process.

Contents: Introduction, Richard Ward and Bill Bytheway. Lifetimes of Discrimination: the experiences of older members of three ethnic minority communities, RoAD. The Same Hairdo: the production of the stereotyped image of the older woman, Anthea Symonds and Caroline Holland. Intersections of Ageing and Sexuality: accounts from older people, Richard Ward et al. Constructions of Age/Ageism and Disablity/Disablism: mapping some similarities and differences, Chih Hoong Sin. Conclusion, Richard Ward and Bill Bytheway.
