Tough Old Broads is a feature documentary that follows three trailblazing women as they continue to make waves into their

older years.

With humour and grit, these ladies shed light on what it takes to make it in a ‘man’s world’ and what old age looks like when you’re a self-described tough old broad.

When Kathrine Switzer became the first woman to officially run the Boston marathon in 1967, it started a lifelong quest to promote women’s running which culminated in her getting the women’s marathon into the 1984 Olympics.  Now 76,  Kathrine runs a global non-profit to empower women through running internationally.

Siila Watt-Cloutier dedicated her life to fighting climate change. Her work in the U.N. resulted in getting toxic chemicals regulated through the Stockholm Convention. In 2005 she was the first person to launch an international legal action against the US for its contribution to global warming, which she argued violated the human rights of the Inuit. Now 70, Siila continues speaking out to save her people and the planet.

Tough Old Broads tells the stories of these women in
their own voices.

The film will inspire a new generation of women by showing what it takes to break barriers and how this spirit continues and changes through a lifetime.  It will prove that it is possible to follow your dreams and sometimes even change the world in the process.

Tough Old Broads is more than a documentary; it will spark a movement of women, both young and old, to embrace their power, speak out, and demand attention.


Tough Old Broads is currently in production and will be released in 2025.
