IGDS Book Launch in Collaboration with the Faculty of Medical SciencesDr. Joan RawlinsSixty Years and On in Trinidad & Tobago: Conversations with Older WomenReview by Dr. Daphne PhillipsWednesday, March 21st 2012, 5:00 P.M.Faculty of Social Sciences LoungeThe University of the West Indies, St. Augustine CampusTrinidad and TobagoSixty years and on in Trinidad & Tobago: Conversations with older women although about twenty (20) women, pays tribute to the 200 women who participated in a study of older women in north, central and south Trinidad and Tobago in 2006. This book is a prelude to a larger on-going work which has the title 'The Reality of Older Women in Trinidad & Tobago'. In addition to the survey-styled interviews which were done of the 200 women, these twenty women were the ones who provided us with additional information about their lives. This information now affords us a better understanding of older women in Trinidad and Tobago. Sixty years and on in Trinidad & Tobago: Conversations with older women allows us to hear of the concerns of older women who spoke not only of themselves and their issues, but also about their concerns for their family, extended family and the society. This book would be useful for students of gerontology, medical students, social work, sociology and policy making students as well as the general public. Anyone with an interest in issues of aging will find this book useful, as it speaks about a group of persons on whom so much depends in this society. Essentially, this important book provides insights into how it really was for older women of Trinidad & Tobago in 2006.Sixty Years and On in Trinidad & Tobago: Conversations with Older Women(FMS, UWI, 2010)The book is available at the UWI Bookstore, St. Augustine Campus
