Summary
Background paper discussing Aboriginal women's interests in the recognition of customary law; raises the concern of adequate protection of Aboriginal women and children in the recognition of customary law; family violence and Aboriginal law are consistently presented as interrelated phenomenon whereas they should be seen as separate issues; the way Aboriginal law is being presented and argued in the courts in relation to women is not always accurate; the status of women in Aboriginal society is often misrepresented both historically and today or sometimes neglected entirely; statistics reflect the level of abuse women suffer through family violence
