Wiyi Yani U Thangani (Women’s Voices) Project aims to bring together and elevate the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls across Australia. Having your say will help to identify the key challenges, priorities and aspirations for change.

The Australian Human Rights Commission is seeking to engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls (aged 12+) to hear your views, stories and experiences.

We want to hear:

  • what are your priorities and dreams?
  • what is needed for effective programs and services?
  • what do you need to feel safe, happy and empowered?
  • what are the key challenges and strengths for women and girls in your community?

 

We know that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are unique and that there is much diversity amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls.

Wiyi Yani U Thangani will seek to engage with a broad range of people, especially those with unique aspirations and priorities, including Elders, linguistically diverse and LGBTI Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls. Through our collective voice we have the power to influence our lives and our future.

 

YARN WITH US

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner and her team will be traveling around Australia from February 2018 to speak with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls and those who support them.

We look forward to speaking with as many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls as possible in 2018.

Further updates about the Project can be found on this website or by following us on social media.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner invites all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls (12yrs+) and those who support them to join the Wiyi Yani U Thangani conversation. If we do not get a chance to speak to you directly, we still wish to encourage you to have your say or get in touch with us.
