Guest speaker is Ms Kellie Mills, a passionate and dynamic speaker who suffered domestic and family violence.

“We now have 53 stories on our website, more than halfway to our goal,” Kellie Mills told Bay News Of The Area .
The powerful stories have come from women of every level of education, of all different ages and levels of education and from a variety of demographics.
“I wanted to create a space where women could tell their stories,” Ms Mills said.
