Campaign to restore specialist domestic violence women’s refuge in Taree

A campaign to bring back a community-based specialist domestic violence refuge, run by women for women, in Taree, is underway.

Leonie McGuire is leading the fight and has called a meeting at Club Taree on Thursday, June 8 with the aim of forming a steering committee of women to champion the cause.

Speakers will include principal of the Feminist Legal Clinic in Sydney Anna Kerr as well as Leonie, who was a founding supporter of the Taree women’s refuge 35 years ago and manager between 1992 and 2004.
