We are old women hear us roar (2021).

With a cohort of older women and my younger daughter and daughter in law, we performed in costumes to my adaptation of Helen Reddy’s feminist anthem I am woman (1971). My reworking of Reddy’s lyrics encapsulated my research and findings. It is a call to action to end ageism and domestic violence against women. The performance took place in King George Square. It was photographed and videoed. Please contact me if you are interested in viewing the video.
