1990 The Leaping Ladies (illustration of an older woman leaping over the back of another)

1990 - The OWN Newsletter launches

The OWN newsletter is launched using the ‘leaping ladies’ logo. It replaces the news sheet.

The OWN Theatre Group puts older women’s issues in the spotlight in their parody Older Women Centre Stage at the Premier’s Forum Ageing: Facts, Fears and Fictions.

OWN workshops expand and move to the Quakers Hall in Devonshire Street and training rooms at the Australian Metal Workers Union in Elizabeth Street in Sydney. 

OWN’s Health Group is formed and runs for twelve years.

The first issue of Making KNOWN, the newsletter of National OWN, is published.

History is herstory too.
