The Roundtable on Violence Against Women

Nikki emailed me a little while ago about the launch of a new organisation bringing together those campaigning to end violence against women in all its forms. This Roundtable on Violence Against Women had its debut in November, and sadly I've only just caught up with life enough to blog about it.

As part of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, the Roundtable in Aotearoa NZ is encouraging supporters to email a Cabinet minister a day from November 25th to December 10th. It's not too late to start now, I'm a bit late to the party too but I'm going to give it a go. It's a great way to let the new Government know that they have a lot of work to do around violence against women and that there will be many out there scrutinising their policies through that filter.
