Remembering Pearl Gambanyi Gibbs during NAIDOC Week. Pearl was a life-long campaigner for Aboriginal people. She ‘lived and breathed, ached and bled’ Aboriginal affairs, and played a key role in The Aboriginal-Australian Fellowship, which pushed for changes to the Australian constitution and ultimately led to the 1967 referendum. For more on Pearl and other women trailblazers, visit ‘Blaze: Working Women, Public Leaders’, on display at the Whitlam Institute within Western Sydney University, and online at: http://ow.ly/Zezs30jDWNI
