silvery tay-haired women
As part of Dundee Commons Festival, I put out a callout for women - who had resisted the social pressure to dye their hair - to appear together on City Square, Dundee, on the afternoon of August 29, 2015. We walked down a silver carpet holding placards. Voice and visibility for older women! Thanks to all the participants, Kathryn Rattray, Clare Brennan, Duncan McLaren, Theresa Lynn, Jonathan Baxter, Karen and Donald Spy and fellow Commoners.
