About Kapululangu Women's Law and Culture Centre
Kapululangu Aboriginal Women’s Law and Culture Centre is the initiative of the Indigenous women of Balgo/Wirrimanu Aboriginal Community. It was established by the Women Elders to support them maintaining their Law (philosophy) and Culture (customs) and teaching their cultural knowledge to their younger generations.
About Dr Zohl de Ishtar
Dr Zohl de Ishtar has lived and worked with the Women Elders of Balgo in remote Western Australia since 1999. She is the founding-coordinator of the Kapululangu Aboriginal Women’s Law and Culture Centre, and she is now its Executive Director.
Irish-Australian by heritage, Zohl has worked and lived with Indigenous Australian and Pacific women and their communities since 1979. A sociologist with a PhD in Women’s Studies, she is the author of the pioneering books Daughters of the Pacific (1994), and Holding Yawulyu: White Culture and Black Women’s Law (2005).
As a consequence of her work with Indigenous peoples and her anti-nuclear education work, Zohl was nominated to the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005 by the Swiss-based 1000 Women for Peace initiative and she is a member of the resulting network of the 1000 “Peace Women Across the Globe”.
My relationship with Zohl and Kapululangu
Zohl and I have been friends plus collaborators and activists together for many years now. We have coached and mentored each other at pivotal points of our lives and vision. We have both worked for the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. And I have volunteered as a Marlpa to the Kapululangu Women Elders, and co-run an educational project for the young women.
What you can gain from the evening

Now, dress up and go to make it happen!”

And she is founder of the Brisbane-based Women Howling at the Moon initiative.
Chris' deep commitment and magic lies in partnering inspired women who are ready to step over the line into their next zone, be their full potential and create the extraordinary results they want for their businesses and volunteer projects, their personal lives and beyond. To be unstoppable on matters of importance to them, and on their terms.
Invariably these are passionate women with big hearts and a commitment to social justice and the environment. Women who want to live a fabulous life themselves AND create a legacy that will leave the planet a better place for their having lived here. Women who love learning, growing, adventure and being used up by the time they die. A description that also nicely sums up Chris.
