Knowing Communicating Influencing Empowering women in Doing what matters!
Women’s Health Matters is committed to reconciliation and acknowledges the First Australians whose cultures are among the oldest living cultures in human history, as the traditional custodians of this continent. We also recognise the history of dispossession experienced by the First Australians and the impact this has and continues to have on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. We recognise the Ngunnawal People as the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We recognise the strength of Aboriginal women and their continuing connection and contribution to this land, these waters, and our communities. May we walk gently and treat the earth and each other with care and respect.
Female detainees will finally be moved back into cottages that were designed to accommodate them.
For three years, women were previously housed in a wing designed for high-security male prisoners.
After extensive advocacy, we are proud to have been a part of the process of implementing change and being a voice for women in prison.
We give voice to the voiceless. We make the invisible visible.
Women do health differently. Our research and advocacy is informed by women for women.
