Wiyi Yani U Thangani (Women’s Voices) builds on the legacy of the 1986 Women’s Business Report.

The Australian Human Rights Commission (the ‘Commission’) is asking Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander women and girls to share their experiences about what the key challenges, priorities and aspirations are for themselves and their communities.

This is part of a major project, led by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, June Oscar, AO and funded by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner and her team will travel around Australia to speak with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls about what is important to them, their key strengths and their aspirations for change.

This national conversation will seek to elevate the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls, whose needs and voices as a distinct group are often not heard.
