This is the 20th anniversary history of Djirra, (formerly the Family Violence Prevention Legal Service Victoria), an Aboriginal community-controlled organisation specialising in family violence matters.
The book charts the history and establishment of the organisation, outlines its work and programs, successes and achievements, and maps the future path for the organisation.
It is presented with a stunning collection of photographic portraits of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who, among many others, are the cultural force that is Djirra.
