Nations that raise retirement ages appear to work on the assumption that there is appropriate employment available for people who are expected to retire later. Gender, Ageing and Extended Working Life challenges both this narrative and the gender-neutral way the expectation for extending working lives is presented in most policy-making circles. The international contributors to this book—part of the Ageing in a Global Context series—consider the range of transitions from paid work to retirement that are potentially different for women and men in different family circumstances and occupational locations. They also offer solutions governments should consider to enable them to evaluate existing policies. Based on evidence from Australia, Germany, Ireland, Portugal, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States, this is essential reading for researchers and students, and for policymakers who formulate and implement employment and pensions policy at national and international levels.
