Women’s Refuge CE is announced
Women’s Refuge has announced its new Chief Executive. Dr Ang Jury will be taking over the helm of the largest agency in New Zealand that deals with domestic violence from the 25th March.
“It is a great honour to be selected to lead Women’s Refuge,” says Dr Jury. Dr Jury has worked in the domestic violence area for almost 20 years, the majority of this time from within the Women’s Refuge movement in Aotearoa. She comes to this role from her previous position as Manager of Palmerston North Women’s Refuge. “I look forward to taking up the fine work of my predecessor Heather Henare. I have a great appreciation of the work carried out by Women’s Refuge and I hope to ensure that this organisation remains as strong as ever.”
Dr Jury has been involved with Women’s Refuge and the domestic violence arena since the mid-1990s in one way or another. Firstly as a Collective member and volunteer worker for Palmerston North Women’s Refuge for several years and in more recent times as Refuge Manager. She has also served a three year term as member and Co-chair of NCIWR. Her history through the 1990s involved teaching, researching, writing and speaking in the areas of gender and domestic violence while completing doctoral research (an exploration of the role of shame within abusive relationships) at Massey University. Dr Jury has since presented her research to a number of forums within New Zealand and internationally. After completing formal studies she worked for some time developing and coordinating family violence collaborations within the Manawatu and Whanganui regions under the umbrella of the government’s Te Rito Family Violence Strategy before returning to Women’s Refuge and her most recent role in 2009.
