‘Rosemary’s Way’ of Connection
Hear the background story of the film ‘Rosemary’s Way’ …how for two decades, Rosemary Kariuki has helped refugee women in Sydney’s west, escape domestic violence, financial distress, isolation and integration into Australian life.
Rosemary, the 2021 Australian Local Hero of the Year, is the centre of this emotional and intimate documentary that shines a light on Sydney’s migrant community.
Hear how this vibrant, full-of-life, big-hearted and charismatic woman from Kenya, escaped abuse and violence in her homeland to relocate in Australia. Recognizing many of the same tell-tale signs of domestic and societal violence in other women in her new community, not to mention the isolation and loneliness that the marginalized can feel, she went on to become an advocate for migrant and refugee women devoting herself to tearing down cultural silos for women of colour.
You’ll be touched and inspired by how Rosemary is creating Peace in Sydney’s west.
Followed by a Q & A, Rosemary will warm your heart, and bring a smile to your face.
