Feisty Women exists to advance equality and economic justice for women over the age of 60. We believe the voice of older women is absent from national debates about discrimination and inequality. After a lifetime of sex discrimination, and now age discrimination, we will apply our hard-won knowledge to the problem of economic and social inequality for girls and women.

messages of support.
Feisty Women is delighted to share a message of support from Lorraine Kelly - herself a Feisty lady - a little bird told us she had a big birthday in 2019... so we got in touch to tell her about our mission and here’s what she said:
I wholeheartedly support the “Feisty Women of Dundee”.
They are the trailblazers who have amassed so much knowledge, wisdom and experience that they can pass on to the next generation.
It’s vital their voices are heard and not ignored.
I’ve just turned sixty myself and count myself as a feisty Dundee woman. I’m in my prime and so are they!
Feisty Women started life as a Scottish campaigning group fighting for pension justice for fifties-born women. It quickly became apparent to us that women over the age of 60 are invisible to policy makers. We came to understand that pension injustice is a symptom of a much bigger, deeply-rooted problem – age and sex discrimination against older women. We believe this has to change.
