2001 - A table with OWN signage and publications

2001 - Two organisations, two roles

As OWN expands through NSW, it separates into two organisations. OWN NSW, a peak body responsible for Statewide Projects and policy development, and OWN Sydney, concerned with local government issues, wellness activities and socialising. 

The newsletter On the Rocks becomes OWN Matters.

A resource guide Getting Started: Growing Stronger on how to set up and run a successful group is published.

The Theatre Group performs its 2001 show Doing Our Own Thing. Cara McDougall’s Wellness Guide is launched at Bankstown’s Wellness Open Day. 

Illawarra OWN sets up a performance group SilvertOWNs, which performs at the Town Hall as a finale to local International Women’s Day activities.

History is herstory too.


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