The NSW Women’s Refuge Movement supports the policy and practice of women managing and operating refuges within a feminist framework for women alone and women with children escaping domestic violence.

Domestic violence can occur within all relationships of a personal nature, including heterosexual or lesbian, marital or defacto, extended families and ex-relationships.

Domestic Violence-Power Disparities based on Cultural Background

The NSW Women’s Refuge Movement acknowledges the disadvantages experienced by women and children’s experience as a result of discriminatory policies, practices and attitudes in our society based on cultural background.

The NSW Women’s Refuge Movement recognises that lesbians and their children experience particular difficulties and barriers when trying to access services.

The Lesbian Support Group was formed by lesbians in the NSW Women’s Refuge Movement as a support network to ensure issues relating to lesbians and their children remain on the agenda
