Abstract

That an Aboriginal woman may experience discrimination precisely because she is an Aboriginal woman[1] is beyond the grasp of discrimination laws which do not recognise that race and gender (and other characteristics) may have a combined effect on the experience of an Aboriginal woman. Instead, Australian discrimination laws treat the discrimination suffered by a woman as being a universal experience that occurs only on account of her gender.
