To secure back the earned dues of 1950s Women who've 'done the right things' throughout their lives where they faced lifelong inequities.

by Joanne Welch in Hertford, Hertfordshire, England

We did it
On 20th November 2017 we successfully raised £15,666 with 1101 supporters in 21 days

New stretch target

To fund promulgation of project and magnify project.


It is fantastic that we have raised over £6,000 in a matter of a few hours which is proof we need to demonstrate the importance surrounding this issue.

With this in mind, we have extended the initial stretch target to £15,000 to fund a Digital Campaign and market the documentary online. 

The aim of which would be to introduce the documentary to a wider audience as possible and secure the return of our earned dues which are being kept from us.

Thank you for everything you are doing to support us - we cannot do this with you.

Dear Friends

Thanks so much for signing the petition calling for the state pension age to be brought #Backto60 for #50sWomen.

So far nearly 650,000 of us have signed it, and many thousands have recently shared their stories as part of a public survey - hosted by 'Silence of Suicide' - that's going to be handed in to the government as part of our ongoing engagement with them.

Our partners, and Joint Founders of 'Silence of Suicide', Michael Mansfield QC and Yvette Greenway have made a video to support  #BackTo60 for #50sWomen.  Our joint evolving plans will be hugely beneficial to each of our initiatives - together we can make the differences sought.

Next, in order to really help ramp up the pressure, we're going to be doing something quite exciting and radical, but it'll only work if enough of us chip in together.

We're going to make a documentary, highlighting the "grotesquely disadvantaged" 1950s women, in this cruel, stealth decision - based on a false premise - to change our retirement date.  Then we're going to make sure that as many MPs see the film as possible, and that it's shared all over social media ahead of a peaceful demonstration and delivery of the 650,000 strong petition, survey evidence and documentary to The Cabinet.

A Writer, Director & Producer of Film & TV, Jasper Warry and Yvette Greenway @annacevents will jointly direct the documentary.  Crew are lined up and we've got a trendy venue to screen the film in, but we need to raise £6,000 to make it happen. 

Can you please chip in today to help secure back the earned dues of 1950s women who have become 'spreadsheet anomalies" - amidst the fallout from the crash of the economy.  Our documentary will shine a spotlight on their plight to force the issue back onto the government's agenda.

They'll be a 'Private Screening' to which 50 guests will be invited and it will then be published online for public interest. You can be a VIP guest whilst standing up for the legal rights of 3.48m women - a rare opportunity to make social history alongside a world class team.

Please will you support the making of our documentary which will enable us to document social history and speak truth to power with 'One Voice' to win back our earned dues.

Most grateful to you, thank you.
