Overview

Older Women's League was founded in 1980 after a White House Conference on Aging in Des Moines, Iowa. Its mission was to be an advocate for older women, from the recognition of the value of their work (paid and unpaid), to health care for all. Issues such as Social Security, caregiving, pension reform were addressed in Mother's Day campaigns. The Denver Chapter participated in all the activities of the national branch, as well as having its own newsletter and gatherings.
