Director, writer, producer, 2007 (Aquarius Health Care Media and Terra Nova distributors)
The video has been translated into Spanish, French, Swiss, German, and Italian and is also in Closed Caption.

San Diegans 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.
