This DVD is part of a broader project, “Young Women Talk”, designed to provide opportunities for young women aged 18-29 years to share their personal stories of learning and working and their vision for women in Australia.

“Young Women Talk” was initiated by S4W a national network of non-profit organisations primarily concerned with improving the lifelong economic wellbeing of Australian women.

Security4Women hope this will create greater awareness among Australian government decision makers of the life experiences of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
