our manifesto.

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:

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!
