In 1988 a group of older women decided they were fed up with being invisible so they pitched a tent in front of Parliament House in Canberra to communicate their message to the politicians and public.  But instead of placards and posters, they composed songs and wrote skits to attract attention. More than 25 years later that’s what we’re still doing.
