Abstract

The nature of female employment means women are more likely to be affected by a changed national default retirement age since women in the UK have retired earlier historically than men but also because the term ‘career’ is potentially a masculine model. The ‘career’ has been a historically male model of working life, derived before women generally entered the workplace. This paper reports a structured literature review undertaken which has sought to examine the work experiences of older women (50 to 65+) in the UK. It identifies possible issues concerning caring demands and their workplace health during the periods of peri-menopause to post menopause in order to raise awareness of the shifting landscape of female employment. It seeks to identify current research within the UK to seek gaps and to make recommendations for future practices in the work place
