Dr Barrett discusses how sexual abuse of older women is massively under-reported. She explains how the perception of older women as asexual can lead to dismissal and disbelief when sexual abuse is reported. She also argues that there is little recognition of older women’s risk of sexual abuse by service providers. Dr Barrett then discusses how The Power Project provides information around the prevention and reporting of the sexual abuse of older women.
