1989 - A year of growth and optimism

In February, OWN sets its aims and objectives encompassing enrichment, support, advocacy and skills development. 

A series of health workshops is held on healthy ageing and older female invisibility based on the Boston Women’s Health Collective’s Our Bodies, Growing Older model. 

Leisure groups bloom, including Tai Chi, exercise, writing and talks.

A project worker Pam Benton is employed to help consolidate the OWN project. She runs a series of Guided Autobiography projects that later result in a book.

History is herstory too.


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