It wasn't until I moved to the West Coast that I encountered radical older women. Back home in Iowa most seniors were conservatives. I was afraid that I would never fit in once I reached their age, and I sincerely hoped that my generation wouldn't undergo some sort of negative transformation and all start voting Republican.
So imagine my delight to hear about the Raging Grannies who went down to a recruitment station to earnestly volunteer to take the place of some young person who would otherwise die in Iraq.
I hope I am half that gutsy when I am their age. Hell, I hope someday I am their age!
