1991 - A group of women, standing at the OWN office opening

1991 - A new home in the Rocks

OWN becomes official, incorporating in January.

Noreen Hewett officially opens the OWN’s new premises in The Rocks. Her dream of a separate organisation for older women finally comes to fruition. The Theatre Group triumphantly performs ‘Just because we’re grey’.

A new production, Showing Our Own Age, is performed during Seniors Week.

Gwen George and Louise Anike are interviewed on ABC Radio National’s Coming Out Show, attracting national interest.

Louise Anike writes and presents several papers, including Women over 60 growing old: who are their allies and where is their equality? and Ageing is Women’s Business.

History is herstory too.


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