OWN NSW wants to harness the power of our strong and large community to support our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders by walking together with them in the spirit of true reconciliation.
“Our OWN Stories” was set up as a ten-week workshop program at Bankstown Arts Centre with 15 older women from refugee and migrant backgrounds. These women were offered the opportunity to express themselves and tell their stories through art.
In the lead up to 2023 International Women’s Day, we’re calling on everyone to to ask the question, “Where’s Lyn?” because the voices of older women are being ignored in the design of policies, especially the policies which impact them the most.
The #OlderWomenCount campaign run in partnership with CELEBRATE AGEING highlights the achievements and contributions of older women, raises awareness of the inequalities they experience and promotes strategies for inclusion.
From the voices of older women: “Whenever I think about sexual assault I think about my mother and aunties, their hands in shreds as they peeled prawns while the men sat around drinking beer. My cousin’s husband sexually abused me since the age of 11…”
From the voices of older women: “The older women is a windswept tree. All the leaves are gone and the branches are silhouetted against the sky. So much has been lost.”
From the voices of older women: “You know how when you are homeless, you feel so lonely? I was living in my car. I’m 67 and very fortunate because I am now in social housing. It’s all women here so I feel safe.”
From the voices of older women: “The so-called Venus of Willendorf statues have been explained as fertility symbols, stone-age pornography, female goddesses. Several archaeologists have measured their bodily dimensions and claim these statues represent post-menopausal women.”
From the voices of older women: “Through the fog we recognise there is a human form; but we don’t really care to know too much. We understand she may have suffered. We understand she has loved and created; but we don’t really care. The sharpness is gone. Through the fog we can’t really see her – we could if we tried. But we don’t.”
