Because of her, we can!
Women play a vital role in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and this is celebrated with the 2018 NAIDOC week theme: Because of her, we can!
Increasing numbers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women are becoming empowered through education while embracing their cultural heritage. They strengthen and support their communities, and provide a stimulating environment for the next generation of children. In 2014–15, there were 231,100 women in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population aged 15 years and over.
