Cervical screening survey.

Cervical cancer screening online survey

Do you take part in cervical screening? Why/why not?

Currently very little is known about non-heterosexual women's engagement in cervical screening in Aotearoa - and the reasons we do, or do not, engage with this process. Please consider contributing to this important Kaupapa. Follow this link to find out more about the research and/or to participate in the survey.

Sonja Ellis is undertaking this study exploring non-heterosexual women's engagement with cervical screening. Sonja is a lesbian, and an experienced researcher in both sexual and gender diversity and sexual health. She is an Associate Professor in Te Kura Toi Tangata (School of Education) at The University of Waikato, New Zealand. The research has received some funding from the Waikato Graduate Women Educational Trust - it is not in any way funded, or connected to, any health care entities. Contact Sonja at sonja.ellis@waikato.ac.nz

Bette Armstrong and Bea Arthur.

Armstrong & Arthur Charitable Trust for Lesbians

The Armstrong and Arthur Charitable Trust for Lesbians was established in 2001 by the late Bea Arthur for the benefit of lesbian community groups in the Wellington region. The Trust is named to recognise and remember the 57 year relationship of Bea and her partner the late Bette Armstrong. The Trustees invite applications for funding assistance, as grants, for projects and activities that will benefit all or part of the lesbian communities in the Wellington region. Visit the Trust website www.armstrong-arthur-trust.nz for information about how to apply for grants, and how to donate or make bequests to the Trust.

Application forms and guidelines are available from the Trust's website.
