Our Site Real Stories is a place for the Our Site audience and WWDA members to connect, share, and learn more about each other. If you are a woman, girl, or gender diverse person with disability and have a story to share, please send your pitch to oursite@wwda.org.au. Your pitch should be between 50-100 words describing your story and how you would like to share it.

We strongly encourage submissions from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, other Black and Brown voices, people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, people with experiences of incarceration or institutionalisation, LGBTIQA+ people and people with intellectual disability. WWDA will be reserving space for these voices.

Our Site believes strongly in paying women and gender-diverse people for their work and as such, can offer $100 for you to share your story.
