dc.description.abstractDespite the exponential aging of worldwide population, and despite women still living longer than men, prejudicial negative stereotypes and cultural constructs attached to female aging come to the surface time and again in fiction, mirroring real life. This article aims to analyze three contemporary English novels with elderly female characters as their protagonists contrasting their fictionalized experiences with scientific theories developed around the process of female aging.
