International Women’s Day with Maggie Kirkman

Hawthorn, Woiwurrung Country, 687 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122

Join us for a conversation with Iola Mathews and Maggie Kirkman to celebrate the release of Time of Our Lives: Celebrating Older Women.

‘A must-read for all those women who refuse to go gentle into that good night’ Maxine McKew.

Time of Our Lives presents the extraordinary lives of ordinary women in their seventies, eighties and nineties, challenging the stereotype of the helpless old woman who is nothing more than a burden. This collection demonstrates the rich lives led by 20 women of diverse backgrounds, all born before 1946 and all of whom have achieved great things in older age. As the generation of Australian women who waved the flag for feminism enter retirement, let’s change the conversation around what it means to be ‘old’. Our ageing population is not a burden – it’s time to celebrate the contributions that older women make to our community.

Free, but bookings are essential.
