NAIDOC – Daisy Bindi: the girl who fought for more
Play • 16 min
Daisy Bindi couldn't understand why her boss paid wages to the white workers, but not to her. She was no different to them. And neither were all the other Aboriginal workers who were being treated like slaves.

In 1946 Daisy decided enough was enough. She helped lead a three-year strike which won Aboriginal workers fairer pay and better working conditions.

Narrated by singer, actor and radio presenter Christine Anu.
