Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women comprise 34 per cent of women behind bars but only 2 per cent of the adult female Australian population.
The majority are mothers of dependent children.
Implications are profound as trauma is embedded in communities through the separation of families, use of mandatory strip-searches and the cycling of girls into the adult prison system as they mature.
Despite this, there have been limited solutions targeted at addressing the issue.
Join our panel as they talk about how we've gotten to this point and where we need to go to change.
This event will be held from 5.30pm to 6.30pm followed by drinks.
