New Zealand’s first Māori women’s refuge started in a one-bedroom flat in Hamilton in 1987, with Roni Albert and Ariana Simpson at the helm.

Their journey from modest beginnings to becoming a truly influential organisation is described in Stand By Me, The Story of Te Whakaruruhau Waikato Women’s Refuge.

Writers Venetia Sherson and Denise Irvine join Roni Albert to preview the publication in this panel discussion.

Thanks to our writers:
