In 1975 Queensland women came together to start the second women’s shelter in Australia – Women’s House. For four decades these and many more women fought to keep this space open for women surviving domestic and sexual violence.
In November 2015 Women’s House will be celebrating the herstory of this place and the women that built this organisation. Women’s House will be also protesting the need to keep fighting violence against women on an individual and systemic levels.
We will be posting news regarding our birthday on our website throughout the year but if you do not want to miss anything or if you want to contribute in some way, contact us on the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
