Older Women's Co-Housing

I was really interested to hear about OWCH (Older Women's Co-Housing) on BBC news this morning and after hearing two of the members speak did a quick search online to find out a little more. There's so much about this project that I admire - the upholding of traditional ideals concerning neighbourhoods and communities; the commitment to challenging ageism and (though there is no explicitly direct reference to it) the distinctive feminist feel to the project. The group also produce their own quarterly newsletter and with wide ranging topics, from member's reflections on cultural trips to discussions of health, it makes for an interesting read. Their website provides further information about the group as well as links to further reading concerning co-housing and ageism.
