'Rewriting Motherhood' in Queens Hall
Written on the 11 May 2017
What a great honour it was to be asked to launch the book, 'Rewriting Motherhood' in Queens Hall at the Victorian Parliament. Produced by The Babes Project, the book contains the wonderful and real stories of young women and their journey through motherhood.
The Babes Project was founded by Helen Parker and together with a team of committed women, she is providing essential support and assistance to hundreds of young and first time mums.

I had the honour as Chair of the Family and Community Development Committee to table the Report 'Betrayal of Trust' in the Victorian Parliament on November 13, 2013.
This Report was a result of the Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Non-Government Organisations conducted by the Family and Community Development Committee.
Premier Dr Denis Napthine said, "this is a significant and historic Inquiry and the first of its kind in Australia. The Committee has delivered an outstanding report with 15 very important recommendations."
