The Women Lawyers Association ACT, in conjunction with Legal Aid ACT and the Women's Legal Centre, invites you to the launch of Dr Skye Sauders' book Whispers from the Bush: The Workplace Sexual Harassment of Australian Rural Women.

“It tells of the stories of rural women in Australia who are faced with physical, mental and spiritual threats from male colleagues. Skye Saunders has opened a lens on an aspect of our Australian community that has received too little attention up until now. Indeed, this is an area that clearly needs further attention and funding.” - Lieutenant David Morrison AO, Australian of the Year

The event is open to all, and will feature guest speakers Melinda Tankard Reist, Women & Girls Advocate, and Belinda Barnard, ACT Human Rights Commission. Drinks and nibbles will be provided. See the attached flyer for more information, and please RSVP online.
