Raging Grannies of Victoria

Biographical history

The Raging Grannies originated in Victoria BC in 1987 by a group of peace activists. Since that time, other groups have been established across Canada, the United States, and Europe. Through their songwriting, street theatre, political satire and funny costumes, the Raging Grannies have become well known for exposing environmental and social issues to the public. As a group of women, many of whom are grandmothers, their concern for having a safe world for future generations is what has helped motivate them to become an astounding instrument of social protest.
