1988 - A woman holding a placard in front of Parliament house, "Age is not a disease".

1988 - OWN Project goes to Canberra

The OWN Project performs on the lawns outside Parliament House to highlight the invisibility of older women with funding from the Australian Women’s Weekly.

The performance, attended by Labor Senators Margaret Reynolds and Pat Giles, had a big impact and two federal government grants were soon awarded to OWN.

History is herstory too.
