Rural elderly women in Beijing commonly experience various problems in terms of subsistence and social status.Data demonstrates that the sample groups have three basic characteristics: low levels of education,higher widowed rate,and poor health.Under the influence of these characteristics,rural elderly women face many problems such as low income,heavy burdens,monotonous lifestyles,and too much housework.Meanwhile,their low levels of political participation and conservative mind-sets have led to their social function and value being ignored.In order to improve their living conditions and quality of life,this article proposes that their social security be improved in order to provide them with more opportunities to participate in social life.
