Strange request

I know this sounds like spam, but there is a reason why I'm asking, i promise.


How old is an old woman? i.e. if you saw the phrase "old woman" used to describe someone in a story, what age would you assume that person was?



I'm trying to comment on a translation of some Norwegian childrens stories, and I think they might have aged the main character, but I need the opinion of native speakers in order to really say anything about it :)

Thank you
-Gry
