Raging Grannies WOWW
Raging Grannies WOWW is not a singing group, a chorus, or a choir. We are activists for such progressive causes as peace, social justice, human rights, and the environment. We write “speeches,” fit them into borrowed melodies, and deliver them in unison as song parodies at rallies, protests, and public meetings. We decide among ourselves what issues to support or oppose, what to say, how to say it, and where to say it. We are against violence in any form, but we are not afraid of offending groups who hold views that differ from ours. Some of us were previously or are concurrently members of other gaggles, so we share their history and accomplishments.

Raging Grannies WOWW is a chapter (known as a “gaggle”) of the International Raging Grannies. What does WOWW stand for? Each of us will decide for herself. Some like “Wild Old Women of Westchester.” Maybe it’s “Whatever Outfits we Want to Wear.”
Our activities take place in towns in the Lower Hudson Valley, north of New York City. We invite women everywhere to join us in Westchester County. There are no age limits, and you need not be grandmothers, or even mothers. We can’t require musical ability because some of us would have to resign immediately. We welcome good strong voices. We value imagination and creativity, along with a passionate commitment to peace, justice, and taking care of Mother Earth. Spontaneity and flexibility help us respond to issues and events that arise unexpectedly. We will decide when and where to meet as our gaggle forms, accommodating as many Grannies as we can, hoping to make meetings convenient for all. To keep meetings short and infrequent, we will conduct business by e-mail as much as possible. We hope to acquire an accessible meeting space.
Like most Raging Grannies, we share songs with other gaggles and adapt them to local issues or update them to apply to changes in the world around us. Hundreds of Raging Grannies songs can be found at http://raginggrannies.net
Some of the songs we like best are posted there.

We often sing at rallies, protests, demonstrations, and the like, but we are also invited to sing by other groups and individuals. If you’d like us to sing for your organization or rally, please e-mail us at email@example.com
