A Place To Call Home: National Conference of the National Older Women’s Network

Older women want to live in a society which recognises their
contribution and values them as an individual, regardless of their age.
Older women are the new face of poverty and the fastest growing
cohort amongst the homeless in Australia. Older women are also often
excluded from the statistics of violence against women, and therefore
remain hidden. Many older women are facing a future of economic
uncertainty. Join our conference and take part in the discussions
because Older Women also Refuse to be Invisible and Forgotten! We are
loud, feisty and ready to take up the new challenges ahead.
