SPEAK: Speaker Program for Empowerment, Advocacy and Knowledge
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The SPEAK project will have a speaker series involving key populations of women in Australia, including women affected by gender-based violence, young women, women with disabilities, as well as queer/transgender women. The outcome of the project is to have enough information to write a position paper based on data collected and advocate to the government for an increase in access to female controlled/friendly barrier methods in pharmacies, chemists and supermarkets throughout Australia.
