New Legal Service for Aboriginal Women

Wednesday 16th January / posted by Chris Wheeldon

The State Government has committed $600,000 to set up a new legal service for Aboriginal women in Perth.

It will provide domestic violence victims with legal advice and representation, counselling and education – and many say it’s long overdue,

One of them is Aboriginal human rights lawyer Hannah McGlade.

Hannah has specialised in human rights law and her work has been the subject of many publications and test cases concerning Aboriginal human rights.

In 2011, Hannah was named the recipient of the prestigious Stanner Award for her PhD thesis concerning Aboriginal child sexual assault and the justice system.

Jess Allen spoke to Hannah about these issues and why it has taken so long for this service to become available in Perth.
