"Women's Aid grew out of the women's liberation movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. As women came together, the issue of violence in the home as well as other forms of sexual and interpersonal violence to women became highlighted.

"The first Women's Aid federation was set up in 1974, providing practical and emotional support as part of a range of services to women and children experiencing violence. We celebrated our 30th birthday in 2004. "[1]
