The Hobart Women’s Shelter, established in 1974, is the second oldest women’s shelter in Australia. The Shelter wishes to acknowledge and celebrate the establishment of the shelter and its early years through a history project. Dr Nicola Goc of UTAS is keen to speak with women who were involved in any way in the first two decades of the Shelter’s existence.
