State Minister for Women and Community Services, Pru Goward, says the site will be an innovative and accessible way to unite women, to inform and entertain them.

“It’s a great way of enabling women to a website where they can exchange information with people they feel safe with,” Ms Goward, herself an avid user of social media giant Twitter, said.

Today’s launch, to be held at a local winery, brings together some of Australia’s most successful and inspirational women.

Local government representatives, state and federal politicians, business leaders, breast care nurses, and former Test cricketer Glenn McGrath, representing the McGrath Foundation, will join the Governor General and FRM at today’s launch.

Not only will the site act as a go-between for issues affecting rural and regional women, it will encourage users to donate money to the McGrath Foundation – a charity dedicated to funding breast care nurses nationwide.

Ms Goward, a former sex commissioner and journalist, has thrown her political weight behind the initiative.

“It’s very exciting, you couldn’t keep me away,” Ms Goward, who’s promised to don her best pink outfit for the launch, said. “It will be a community of people with common interests. Undoubtedly, there’ll be a focus on women’s health.
