Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women continue to be at the forefront of decolonization and the Australian civil rights movement. Although the history of Aboriginal women's activism has been suppressed, and is largely unwritten, it is now being reclaimed. Aboriginal women in Australia continue to unite against the theft of their land, the forced removal of their children, enforced poverty, workplace exploitation, and all forms of racist discrimination. Healing the intergenerational trauma caused by colonialism is also a priority.
