"Look Us in the Eye: The Old Women's Project"
A New Video about Ageism and Activism
By Jennifer Abod, the producer of
The Edge of Each Other's Battles: The Vision of Audre Lorde

In "Look Us in the Eye," Cynthia Rich, Mannie Garza and Janice Keaffaber take the stereotypes of an ageist culture and turn them on their heads. Wearing brilliant t-shirts that declare "Old Women are Your Future" and carrying their giant multi-ethnic old woman puppet, POWER (Pissed Old Woman Engaged in Revolution), The Old Women's Project refuses invisibility and proclaims that old women are part of every social justice issue.
