Pension systems globally are in a period of transformative change as governments struggle to manage the twin constraints of an ageing population and fragile government budgets in the context of the economic recession. In the policy debate and public discourse on pension systems and the changes needed for sustainability, the gender implications of these changes rarely receive serious attention, though a body of literature has documented the unequal access to pension by gender. (Frericks, Maier and de Graaf, 2007; Ivosevic, 2009).
