About the Ruby's Corner category

Welcome to Ruby’s Corner!

If you didn’t already know, Ruby Hutchison MLC founded the Australian Consumers’ Association (ACA) – the organisation we know today as CHOICE. Ruby was not just a consumer rights trailblazer, she was also:

  • Single mother of 7
  • Founding chairperson of the Epilepsy Association of Western Australia
  • First woman elected to the Western Australian Legislative Council

Ruby’s Corner is a place to carry on and honour her pioneering work by discussing consumer issues from perspectives that are often under-represented in today’s conversations, including consumer issues particularly affecting people who are marginalised in today’s society.

You can find out more about CHOICE’s social impact, and our approach to diversity and inclusion. You should also take the time to read and understand our forum guidelines before posting to the CHOICE Community.
