CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF OWL CONTRIBUTIONS!!
Looking for your OWL Hyde Park Memorabilia!!
By Margaret Huyck

OWL National began in 1980 when Tish Sommers and others met to plan the next White House Conference on Aging – and they realized that nothing in the agenda reflected the realities that older women do not match the profile of the “average” elder. No organization focused on the special needs of midlife and older women. It was obvious that women took more time out of the paid labor force to provide unpaid family care, earned less for comparable work when employed, and were likely to end up poor in later life. The Older Women’s League was registered in California. By 1989, the number of chapters had grown, the National office had moved to Washington DC (to be close to policy makers), and the movement was growing. The Hyde Park chapter was formed in 1989.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE THAT REMINDS YOU OF OUR THREE DECADES IN HYDE PARK???

I’ll collect your memorabilia – call me or email me, and we will arrange to bring your things to my place. We’ll have a big display – and special goodies and a chance to share our memories on June 29!
