Credit where credit is due
On Friday 5th July 2013, the Victorian Women's Trust took out advertisements in four mainstream newspapers - Fairfax's The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, News Limited's The Herald Sun and the Australian.
Written by Executive Director Mary Crooks AO on behalf of the Board and staff of the VWT, the advertisement
entitled Credit where credit is due, paid tribute to the effective leadership of former Prime Minister Julia Gillard
and  her minority government, despite a hostile political environment and discourse.
We have been overwhelmed by the response including donations from across the country, which enabled us to place the advertisement in Italian, Greek and Chinese newspapers.
