Abstract
Given the absence of previous studies of habits of physical activity in the set of 65 year older women in Spain, the investigation claims to verify the possible inequality and differences in the practice of physical weekly activity of the older women with regard to the men. The quantitative methodology has consisted of the application of a questionnaire constructed to a random sample of the 65 year older persons of Spain. The conclusions reveal that in this demographic group of the older, and unlike other groups with minor age, a major percentage of women that of males it realizes physical weekly activity (without including to walk). This inequality comes accompanied and probably explained by a series of differences in the relation with the practice of physical activity on the part of the older women in comparison to great part of the older men, and that probably form what might be named as a sports feminine culture of the older women: in the practiced activities, in the used space, in the way of organization of the activity, like in the way of coming to the activity.
