Former MP Catherine Delahunty has revealed her brush with the Gloriavale community left her “disturbed” and “heartbroken” for the women there.

The ex-Green MP said during a 2015 visit to the West Coast Christian community she witnessed institutionalised misogyny that left women without an education or voice.

A spokesperson for Gloriavale rejected claims their woman were uneducated, saying they were “more qualified than other communities in the region”.

In light of recent court cases and a new documentary, she hopes the sect will be “disintegrated” before another generation of children are left traumatised.

The sect has been embroiled in scandal in the last year after the new leader, Howard Temple, was accused of 24 charges of indecent assault towards young women.
