From 1988 to 1995 it was a very busy period for the Mura KoskerSorority organisation and the staff that I previously mentioned, with running the six services, and raising money to send women to
conferences state, nationally and internationally. We sent women to
Beijing, New Zealand, all around Australia – wherever there was a
women’s conference. Also the women did caravan tours throughout
the Torres Strait to give support and encouragement to the women in
the communities regarding the women’s movement, which was some-
thing new and not culturally acceptable with Torres Strait culture,
especially the men, at that time.
