Inside Arohata Women’s Prison I saw this on stuff.co.nz as a feature story with a picture up and the first thing that came to mind was what does Arohata mean in Maori. I (and I think many people would) know that aroha translates as love. The women sit in a semi-circle, heads down, quiet. They’re […]
Hello everyone, I’m hoping that you might be able to help me understand what is currently happening in my case. In late November I filed papers seeking changes to my current contact arrangement.

The mediation myth Family Court counselors and mediators try to resolve matters out of court. But at whose expense? Here’s Norm’s story. (Norm is not his real name, but it’s appropriate because his story is fairly normal). I’d like to talk just a little bit about what has been and continues to be the worst […]
Here is the proof that women have always had their fair share of power. It displays how wise women protect their investment. Nothing wrong with that!!! Stating that women have been denied power in society is quite wrong. The enclosed situation has been happening since the Big Bang. How we obtain power is unique to […]
