As the world’s ageing population grows, it is imperative to protect older women who will be a majority of this segment. Today, older women are invisible and their voices are silenced. It is essential that women of all ages are included in a global treaty to end violence. As part of the Gray Panthers, an inter-generational, social and economic advocacy organization, I have witnessed the effect of ageism on both ends of the spectrum. It is time to stop and legally protect all women from violence. I am in favor of a global binding norm on VAW.
