NZ Herald – The Front Page: Inside Gloriavale – The woman fighting for change from within
By Damien Venuto – NZ Herald – 28/07/2022
Sharon Ready currently lives above an aircraft hangar that served as the former commercial base for Gloriavale.
It’s cold, dark and damp, but she stays on because this is where her family and deceased relatives are located.
“Sharon is what I would describe as a refugee living inside Gloriavale,” Fergus Grady, co-director of the new documentary Gloriavale, tells the Front Page podcast.
“She butted heads with the leadership and there have been a number of conflicts that have resulted in her having meals withheld. She’s able to source food for herself and her husband, but ultimately she’s ostracised from the community.”
That ostracisation has had a dire impact on her life.
