VALE FIONA RICHARDSON

Today we mourn the passing of our great friend and colleague Fiona Richardson.

Fiona was Australia's first Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence and the work she performed in that role impacted on the lives of thousands of women. She was a courageous advocate, and many women and their children are safer today because of Fiona's determination to change a system that had let them down for too long.

Fiona also introduced significant reforms supporting women and girls through her sponsorship of the Victorian Gender Equality Strategy launched last year.

The Australian Labor Party, the State of Victoria and the country are poorer for her passing.

We extend our deepest sympathies to her family at this time.
