ABOUT THE PROJECT

Wiyi Yani U Thangani (Women’s Voices) builds on the legacy of the 1986 Women’s Business Report, which was the first time Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women were heard as a collective. 

Over 30 years later, in June 2017, the Australian Human Rights Commission (the ‘Commission’) and the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) partnered on a national conversation to elevate the voices of Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander women and girls.

Led by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, June Oscar AO, the Wiyi Yani U Thangani (Women's Voices) project set out to capture what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls consider to be their strengths, challenges and aspirations.
