Straight Talk for Women


Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images or names of people who have since passed away.

Straight Talk is an event that gives Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women the opportunity to learn about how to use the Australian political system to bring about broad and lasting positive change.

Over the course of the program, Straight Talk also facilitates small group meetings between participants and female federal parliamentarians with the intention of breaking down barriers to access and establishing ongoing relationships.
