Erin Pizzey

Erin founded the domestic violence shelter movement, opening the first shelter for abused women in 1971.  Less known about Erin is her strong support for Shared Parenting.  So convinced of the beneficial effects of shared parenting for children, she shared a three level home with her ex-husband so their children's lives would not be disrupted after her divorce. 

Erin has authored numerous books and articles.  She is in high demand as a public speaker and has presented globally.  Her articles on the family, published by London's Daily Mail are among the paper's most popular.
