On the 17th July, we will be celebrating the launch of the Otago Women's Refuge Appeals Week 2015. This launch, and the overall week, seeks to raise funds for the Refuge so that they can continue to provide some of the most difficult, but essential, services to our community. They cannot continue their outstanding work without our support. Come join us for a fantastic evening of drinks, nibbles, incredible speakers, and a fun and goodie-filled auction, all in the name of a good cause. We are honoured to have both Dr. Ang Jury, Chief Executive of Women's Refuge, and Louise Nicholas, Anzac of the Year 2015 and tireless campaigner for women's rights joining us to speak.

Dr Jury has been the Chief Executive of Women’s Refuge since March 2015. She has worked in the domestic violence area for almost 20 years, the majority of this time from within the Women’s Refuge movement in Aotearoa. Her history includes teaching, writing and speaking in the areas of gender and domestic violence while completing doctoral research at Massey University. Dr Jury has presented her research to forums within New Zealand and internationally. Dr Jury has also spent time developing and coordinating family violence collaborations within the Manawatu and Whanganui regions under the umbrella of the government’s Te Rito Family Violence Strategy.
This year, Louise was named ANZAC of the Year and was appointed an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to the prevention of sexual violence. Since her rape by policemen nearly 30 years ago, Louise Nicholas fought against the New Zealand police and legal systems to achieve justice for herself and other rape victims. She now advises senior police how to support rape victims, and sparked a campaign for progressive change in the system. Nicholas was named New Zealander of Year in 2007 for her unrelenting courage and determination in the face of public scrutiny.

Tickets are only $50, with over 80% of the total cost going directly to the Refuge. Your ticket cost includes bubbles on entry, nibbles, entry into the auction and two fantastic speakers. These are available through this website or by contacting us on wraw2015@gmail.com.
