A Gender Perspective on Elder Abuse - Submission to the ALRC Elder Abuse Inquiry (March 2017)


WLSA made a submission to the Australian Law Reform Commission's Discussion Paper 83: Elder Abuse (2016), (the Discussion Paper) focussing on the gendered nature of elder abuse.

In our submission we also set out the intersections between elder abuse and intimate partner violence (as a subset of family violence), and drew the Commission's attention to the intersectional disadvantage of vulnerable older women.
