Homeless Women Over 50 in San Francisco: ‘Today It’s the Norm’

Rose Aguilar reports for The Nation on what’s going on with the elderly female homeless population in San Francisco: (Nothing good.) (“One of the regulars at Oshun [Drop-In Center, a public facility run by the San Francisco Department of Public Health] is an Argentine woman named Zulema. She’s a 65-year-old who, when I met her, had been sleeping in the plastic chairs there for six years.”) (thx brittany)
