The Age of Activism: Emma Davies interviewed 8 of the NSW Grandmothers

Wearing the feminist colour purple, the Grandmothers Against Detention of Refugee Children (GADRC) NSW hold peaceful vigils and marches in the Sydney CBD and metropolitan area, and in regional towns including Bundeena, the Blue Mountains, Newcastle and Orange. Some passers by find the group amusing, or wonder what a group of older women are doing marching through the CBD on a Wednesday night, but these women are just doing what they feel is their Grandmotherly duty.
