|Title:||A Polícia E As Formas De Feminização Da Violência Contra O Idoso|
de Oliveira A.M.
|Abstract:||The text examines the way in which police officers deal with violence against the elderly in different types of police precincts as regular police stations, police station of women defense and police stations for the elderly protection. Based on ethnographic accounts of some of these police apparatus and on the analysis of documents they produced, the article highlights the disconnection between the images police officers constructed on old age and those over 60 years of age that comes to the police asking for their help. The main argument is that this disconnection leads to a feminization of old age and to a perception of elderly abuse as a consequence of a lack of familial morality.|
