Indigenous women leaders from Outback WA meet with MPs at Parliament
In the wake of International Women’s Day, six Indigenous women leaders from Outback WA travelled to Perth to attend a morning tea at Parliament House, hosted by Minister for Women’s Interests Simone McGurk.
The women shared their perspective on how connection to country can improve lives on the ground in Outback WA, and how Parliament in Perth can help support their work.
“One of the most important things to our people is to be able to manage our traditional country,” said Bianca McNeair, a Malgana woman from Shark Bay.
“Shark Bay is still one of the most beautiful, unique places in the world. To allow our people to be responsible for caring for that officially, gives us hope for the future.”
