Progressive engagements with the challenges and needs of women in an aging society.

On a Friday morning in February, Nanako Nakamura visited the Older Women’s Network in Sydney that she was referred to by one of her Australian grannies.

In 1987, motivated by women members of the Combined Pensioners Association, the Older Women’s Network started their progressive engagements with the challenges and needs of women in an aging society.

Their activities focus on homelessness, wellbeing & connectedness, income security, ageism, violence, and elder abuse, which are issues of exceptional concern for senior women in Australia.

Although they have a clear focus on old women, their activities are relevant to other social groups and underlying issues in modern societies, suggesting insights to deal with everyday life and inevitabilities, such as age and gender.
