We enjoyed bringing you our first anthology so much that we are doing it again for International Women’s Day 2018 – this time in podcasts. This year, we have partnered with Centre for Health Equity Training Research and Evaluation at the University of NSW chetre.org to bring a focus on women’s wellbeing.
We ask some pretty special Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and one ally for their thoughts around this year’s theme #PressForProgress http://internationalwomensday.com
