In March 1985, a hui was held by women from Rape Crisis centred to discuss the existing arrangements for government funding to groups working against sexual abuse. The hui was facilitated by members of the National Collective of Independent Women's Refuges. Māori women attending proposed that a portion of the government funding for rape and sexual abuse preventive work be tagged for Māori purposes. The proposal was put before Ann Hercus, Minister of Social Welfare. Though it was not accepted in its totality, the Minister supported the concept of Māori self-determination (tino rangatiratanga) being expressed in this area of social work. (From the essay).
