Women of the Ages (Folk Fights Back) Folk Fights Back for Women is proud to release an exclusive video in partnership with Boston organization Rosie's Place! The first women's shelter in the country, Rosie's Place provides a safe and nurturing environment that helps poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives.

Folk Fights Back is a musician led organization that seeks to raise money and awareness for critical issues. Our third event (May 2017), Folk Fights Back for Women, will raise money for local organizations that are doing litigation or other support work for women. These shows also seek to raise awareness about these critical issues, and will feature representation and information from the non-profits being supported.
