Policy Matters: Women and aging: a crisis unfolds
Join us on Tuesday, June 7 at 6:30 p.m. for a panel discussion.

A new Muskie Center report on economic security shows there are twice as many women as men over age 65 and living alone in Maine. They also earn 20 percent less in retirement benefits - often the result of pay inequity and dropping in and out of the work force to care for family members. Outdated policies around social services and a dearth of direct care workers mean many of Maine’s older residents face severe economic hardship and isolation, a situation more pronounced for women. What’s being done and what can be done?

Join moderator Carol Coultas and panelists Jessica Maurer, executive director of the Maine Council on Aging, and Destie Hohman Sprague, executive director of Maine Women’s Lobby, on June 7 from 6:30 - 8 p.m. as they explore the policies and innovations to help aging Mainers.

This series is made possible by Bowdoin and GrowSmart Maine.
