Say Yes: A story of friendship, fairness and a vote for hope

Booktopia

Summary

Once there were two little girls who were best friends. They did everything together. As they got older they weren't allowed to do the same things anymore. Because they looked different. Because of the law.

This is a story about the landmark 1967 Referendum, the two women who came together to change the law ... and how the Australian people said YES.

Centred around two young friends, this is a story about the Constitutional restrictions imposed on Australian Aboriginal people prior to the 1967 Referendum. Included in the story is the lead up to the Referendum and its successful outcome in changing the law to enable improved rights for Aboriginal people.
