Feminist Event: Meeting about submitting on the new domestic violence legislation

From the Roundtable on Violence Against Women (RVAW) newsletter:
This bill strengthens police powers, sentencing provision and bail conditions relating to domestic violence. Submissions to the Select Committee are open until Friday, 27 February 2009.

There is a meeting in Wellington for those interested in writing a submission to the Bill – at Wellington Women’s Refuge, 84 Willis St Community House, level M, 5:30pm Wednesday the 18th Feb.

The Roundtable on Violence Against Women will circulate comments on the Bill after that meeting.
We've had some discussion of this bill recently, and this is a practical chance for those in Wellington to contribute to taking the typing to the next level, especially if you've never done a submission before and it's all a bit daunting.
