Women marching, holding a banner with "Older Women's Network" written on it.

1985 - The first spark

Women members of the Combined Pensioners Association are frustrated at the lack of attention about their concerns, especially given that two thirds of pensioners are women.

They run a series of Older Women’s Workshops, especially for women on low incomes and women in public housing. 

History is herstory too.


Our fortnightly newsletter dOWNtime will keep you informed of the issues and events concerning older women.
