I don’t want to beat around the bush. This card is the business. Straight Talk is a program aimed at empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander woman to be the change they want to see in their community. So when you buy it, you’re opening doors, discussions and changing lives. And if you don’t like that, well — someone else does. Buy it before they do!
How This Helps
Since its beginning, Oxfam Australia’s Straight Talk program has brought together hundreds of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women from across the nation to learn about Australia’s political system and form powerful networks with each other and women of Federal Parliament. At its core, Straight Talk connects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women with the political system and develops the skills of women as change makers within their own community.
“There was a sense of solidarity, a sense of safeness that Straight Talk gives women; the opportunity to feel empowered to share their stories ... It’s a very powerful forum, and a wonderful way to build on one’s own confidence and ability to talk and share.”
— Mayatili Marika, 2014 Straight Talk participant, Australia
