Crusher thumbs up for Wahine Toa
National MP Judith Collins is endorsing a plan by women affiliated with the Mongrel Mob in Waikato to have their own chapter.
Organiser Paula Ormsby wants to set up Wahine Toa as part of an effort to reform Waikato's Mongrel Mob Kingdom chapter, including a greater emphasis on health and education of whānau members.
Ms Collins told Radio Waatea host Claudette Hauiti it's a move that seems to have sparked a vicious response in some parts of the gang.
"About time we had some women having some presence and some strength within these groups. While you’re there, you’ve got to do what you can with it. As we know, some of the women involved with that particular gang have been some of the most abused women in New Zealand so I am delighted they want to stand up for themselves," she says.
