    Dame Roma Mitchell Oration: What would Roma say?

    When: Sunday 23 October at 2:30PM

    Where: Bonython Hall

    Speakers: Hon Dr Robyn Layton

    Dame Roma Mitchell died almost 16 years ago. If she could speak to us today, what might she say about the current state of human rights in Australia? For example, our treatment of refugees and asylum seekers; the incarceration rates of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders; freedom of speech; domestic violence; women in the legal profession, equal pay and same-sex marriage?

    Presented by: THE OFFICE OF EQUAL OPPORTUNITY COMMISSIONER
