Older Women in Poverty
We like to think when we get older we'll be able to comfortably retire, and not have to worry about the costs of housing, healthcare, or other necessities. But 16 percent of American women age 65-and-over live at or below the poverty line. And the numbers keep growing. In this episode, Kathy Ritchie speaks with older Phoenix women experiencing poverty and Arizona organizations responding to the issue. Let us know what you think.
