Our speaker is AJ Nuque. She is a graduate student of the Department of Women and Development Studies and currently an Information Officer of the Economic, Social and Cultural Rights Center of the Commission on Human Rights.
In the webinar, she will talk about her thesis on aging sexuality and womanhood. Drawing from data from in-depth interviews with older women aged 60 and above, her thesis explores how older women define, perceive, and give importance to sexuality and womanhood in later life and situates aging sexuality in gender and development discourse. Through these stories, we are invited to look at new ways we can understand and experience aging, sexuality, and womanhood beyond the heteronormative and romantic lens.
