The Wise Women concept has been occupying a large part of my headspace for almost ten years.
A 50+ woman living in Melbourne, Australia, I have long been aware of a strange invisibility and lack of recognition of the valuable contribution that women over 50 could offer our society.
This “invisibility cloak” (as I have heard it referred to) regularly occurs in mainstream media stories, board appointments, members of expert panels, government consultations, recognition of achievements in the community and many more.
I believe any woman who has been living on this earth for more than 50 years is a Wise Woman. There is such an enormous wealth of knowledge, talent and experience across a myriad of criteria in this group that is being ignored.

Wise Women enables us to connect, collaborate, have fun and harness the awesomeness of 50+ women to make the world a better place.

I am so excited to be finally pursuing my personal passion and feel privileged to be surrounded by such wonderful, supportive women who are helping to make it a reality.
We would really appreciate your help in spreading the word to all the wise women that you know, both in Australia and overseas.
The best way to do this is to subscribe to our contact list at the bottom of this page (it’s free) and you will be kept up to date. Subscribers can also give their input on future activities and events.
The larger our “tribe” grows, the more positive impact we can make.
