Abstract

Against the background of demographic change, mobility issues are becoming crucial. Especially for the elderly, daily outdoor activities are essential for participation in social life. This paper addresses the question of what extent older people, especially women, are threatened by limited social participation in Berlin´s suburbia. The mobility of older women (70+) is characterised by the least number of trips, the shortest distances, and more than 50% walking trips. Besides, many older women are dissatisfied with their residential area. Given the lack of essential facilities, older women have to be considered as disadvantaged in terms of limited social participation.
