The Voice of Midlife and
Older Women in Illinois
Most OWL members are women 50+; many are senior citizens. But OWL is open to both women and men of any age.
OWL is especially concerned about:
Financial Security (preserving Social Security)
Health (including health policy, Medicare, and long-term care)
Access to Housing and Housing Alternatives (affordable senior housing, etc.)
Employment and Unemployment among Older Women
Personal Growth, Managing Personal Change
End-of-Life Decisions (advance directives for health care, etc.)
The Image of Midlife and Older Women
Ending Violence against Women and the Elderly
OWL-Illinois provides support to OWL chapters in Illinois (in Chicago and DuPage County). Nonmembers are welcome to attend chapter meetings, which involve both formal programs and social activities. OWL is a good place to meet new friends.
Our chapters provide programs on issues of concern to older women.
OWL-Illinois also has a listserve (an e-mail list) that all Illinois OWLs are welcome to join. The listserve is a discussion forum for Illinois OWLs and provides information on events of interest, OWL-National activities, etc.
OWL-Illinois does not collect dues; its activities are supported by the generosity of contributors and volunteers. All members of an Illinois OWL chapter are considered members of OWL-Illinois.
If OWL is an organization you would like to be involved with, find a chapter in Illinois and come to a meeting, or e-mail us through the Contact Us link. If you do not live in Illinois, search for a chapter near you with Google.
Coming Events: Watch for coming events!
