I wanted to thank you all for lending your support to the open letter to the New Zealand Rugby Union.
You should be very proud of your input and the result to date. Below is a brief media statement that I have provided.
Steve Tew rang last night and we had a good conversation - this morning he, myself and Louise Nicholas have continued that conversation.
We are looking forward to working with Steve and his team as we move forward.
These are courageous conversations that all New Zealanders need to have about what kind of country we want New Zealand to be.
We thank all those NZ leaders who signed our letter yesterday and the thousands of everyday people who agree with us: Love Rugby. Respect Women.
