McWilliams is new Human Rights commissioner

Monica McWilliams, a former mover and shaker behind the Womens Coalition is expected become the new Human Rights Commissioner. Up to seven other commissioners are expected to be announced today. It’s thought she has a tough task ahead to turn the fortunes of a body that has seen multiple resignations and more than its fair share of flack from all sides of the political equation.
