The president of the Mid North Coast branch of the Country Women's Association has slammed the young woman who allegedly attempted to strike Prime Minister Scott Morrison with an egg at the CWA state conference in Albury on May 7.
The young woman at the centre of the controversy told reporters she had allegedly egged the PM for humanitarian reasons, relating to refugees on Manus Island, and because she objected to Mr Morrison's Twitter feed.
The woman was later charged with common assault and drug possession.
Margaret Breust from Yarrahapinni was in the room when it happened.
She said she was unaware Mr Morrison had been attacked because it was so busy.
Ms Breust said while the 24-year-old Victorian woman might have "got her face in the paper, it wouldn't help her when was she was older and trying to get a job".
"I just don't know where the respect has gone from young people these days," she said.
Ms Breust said the annual meeting had been fruitful.
The CWA plans to lobby the federal government for more drought relief and better planning of water security.
"There also were motions about more cancer clinics in rural areas and increasing wages for trainee nurses especially in aged care."
Ms Breust was unsuccessful in her bid to become state president of the CWA.
Stephanie Stanhope, from the Bega branch was named the next president.
Over 700 women from across the state are attending the CWA state conference which wraps up on May 8
