National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) 2018’s theme of the week, ‘Because of her, we can!’ has a focus on the achievements that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made to the communities, families, history and culture of our country.

Unfortunately, the achievements and contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have gone under the radar and are not widely celebrated and praised enough across our country.

Many of these women have gone on to become doctors, lawyers, favourite media personalities and even so as engineers for our society. As contributing members of society in the social, political and cultural sense, and as fighters and champions of equal rights and opportunities.
