"I don't give a sh*t about the gigs!" Exploring what punk means to older punk women

Dr Laura Way (Research Fellow in Family Research)
Is there a pressure amongst older punk women to grow old gracefully, or do they instead relish in growing old DISgracefully? This talk will draw upon Laura's research with older punk women, exploring how they negotiate 'being' and 'doing' punk as they age, and consider what punk means to them.
