The main challenge in creating dignified living conditions for older women is employment. If the employment process of older women is not properly regulated, they will lose the opportunity to maintain their health and well-being. Unpaid domestic work and discriminatory stigmas have a major impact on employment. Social security, which appears in the form of a post-employment (funded or state) pension, determines the economic status of older/eldest women. Based on the above, the research on the issue of employment should include an analysis of the issue of stigmas, gender perspective and employment issues, hence proposing legislative changes to the state for favourable conditions for older women. In order to develop effective state policy, the article aims to analyse the international documents and the practice of the State of Israel to discuss the employment of elderly women in the central core of the state policy.
