Gender equity

Reclaiming strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identities through a gender equity lens

This project will consider a strength-based understanding of contemporary gendered roles and relationships in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. It will explore a lifecourse approach to understanding multiple gender roles and relationships, and to define gender equity in a contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander context.

This work will have a South Australian focus and contribute to knowledge about the building of respectful relationships through a gender equity lens.

The aim of this project is to explore the diversity of current views and understandings of gender roles, gender equity and the role of gender relations in developing respective relationships, in South Australian Aboriginal communities.
