Is it possible to understand ageing as a differentiating process in terms of gender? After analyzing several aspects in a varied number of narratives dealing with female ageing, the answer is affirmative. Some of the distinctive traits of the feminine vital process are the expression of sexuality, life revisions and gazes in the mirror. This book brings to light the feelings, worries, priorities and aspirations that shape the varied stages that take place in women’s lives.
