Site Addresses UK Senior Gender Discrimination

AngryHarry sent in a link to this new web site, which seeks to address the gender inequalities and double standards that senior citizens in the UK face. Examples include benefits that women can take advantage of at age 60 while men must wait until age 65, including discounted bus passes, state pension, winter fuel allowance, prescription drug discounts, and tax breaks. This is all the more unfair considering that men die on average several years before women, lessening the years that men can enjoy these benefits even if they began at the same age as women.
