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.
16 Days of Activism Against Gendered Violence
The 16 Days of Activism Against Gendered Violence run from 25 November to 10 December. This year DVCS have reached out to many of the fantastic women working within the violence against women prevention space to hear about projects they are working on, what changes they have seen take place and what they would like to see change – and who they admired. We are sharing the campaign to help highlight the wonderful work done in our community by ACT women.
As part of the campaign, our own CEO, Marcia Williams, was interviewed. You can see her interview below:
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.
