The value and benefit of
by women, for women
services
Women’s Resource Centre October 2007
"Here, I don't have to put
up with violence, I can live
independently. The staff
here are really helpful. I
have been able to take a
step back and have the
time to think about me and
make decisions about my
own life. There's no
stopping me anymore."
“It is empowering just to be
in contact with other
lesbians, you don't feel like
an outsider. It’s a
normalising thing - you
have that similarity as soon
as you walk in the door. The
group is so supportive and
non-threatening, we always
welcome new faces.”
"Women need to be able to
take control of their lives
and it's easier to do that
and in a more empowering
way, in our experience, by
providing safe, separate
services for women and
allowing women the space
to develop for themselves."
“Many women who access
our services have
experienced physical and
sexual abuse by men and
can only discuss these
deeply personal issues and
receive empathy from
another woman."
“I'm providing such a good
role model for my daughter.
I've got absolutely no doubt
that I will get a really good
job. I'm absolutely 100%
certain that I'm not going
to be on a low income in
four or five years' time.”
why women-only?
