Sharing the voice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

6th Dec 2017

After more than 30 years national consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women is once again at the forefront following the launch of an Australian wide Women’s voices project.

From early 2018 a series of community visits will take place, consulting with women, girls and organisations in communities across Australia.

Wiyi Yani U Thangani, which means women’s voices in Bunuba, is a new project being led by the Australian Human Rights Commission building on the 1986 Women’s Business report.

June Oscar the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner recently launched the project, stating it not only aims to highlight the achievements and support the younger generations, but also looks to address the challenges faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
