Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander women

INVITATION: WIYI YANI U THANGANI (WOMEN'S VOICES) GATHERINGS

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, June Oscar AO, warmly invites Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls to come together as part of the Wiyi Yani U Thangani (Women’s Voices) project.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls have many strengths and play a central role in bringing about positive social change for our families and communities.

Commissioner Oscar and her team have been speaking with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women (18+) and girls (aged 12-17) through a series of community gatherings across the country, to hear directly about their needs, aspirations and ideas for change.

Submissions are open until 30 November 2018, community consultations will finish in mid-December, and the report will be delivered to the Federal government in June 2019.
