Good news for the women of Australia!

Women leaving abusive relationships will be able to access their superannuation early as part of a suite of Coalition government measures aimed at helping women improve their financial security.

The Minister for Women, Kelly O'Dwyer, will also on Tuesday announce new funding for family law property mediation and greater transparency over superannuation in property settlements.

Easier access to superannuation information would give women - particularly those on low incomes - an added source of income as they re-establish themselves after leaving an abusive relationship.

Streamlining the property settlement process will also give women faster access to income.

Why not a 'one stop shop'. Enhance Centrelink services to enable people to access financial, housing, legal and housing via the Social Work service. People shouldn't have to navigate a myriad of departments at a time of such emergencies.

Remove that smug look, this is not a solution. It further disadvantages women. Perhaps they could access their abusive partners super?

My abusive ex made me withdraw my super while we were together, when he owned me. There was less than nothing when I finally escaped him with one son and 8 months pregnant, in the t shirt and shorts I stood in. I still have no super today.
