ABSTRACT This article aims to talk about an interventional experience with a group of elderly women, who are participants of a university extension project in a public university in a city countryside of São Paulo State. The theoretical framework that supported such activity was the Pichon-Rivière, which served as a tool for reflection on the difficulties and possibilities of aging through the exchange of experiences at the group level. As main results, we identified that female aging is composed of nuances that go through some difficulties exclusive to gender, such as wage inequality, the obligation and devaluation of domestic work, the environment of sexuality still perceived as clandestine and standards of beauty.

Keywords : Groups; Aging; Feminine; Psychology.
