Abstract

Amongst the misinformation, disinformation, and political smear campaigns, a crucial element that underpins First Nations Voice is being lost – that being the importance of women, and their voices, in several First Nations societies. Gender equality in legislation and policy has been noticeably missing from discussions concerning the Voice, which in turn completely silences the voices of those with intersectional identities and experiences.

The Australian Constitution is currently a patriarchal document, and therefore cannot sufficiently house an amendment pertaining to First Nations Voice without significant changes to prioritise gender equality, a key aspect of many First Nations societies and intersectional feminism.
