One of the central issues raised at the recent Association of Women's Health Services Conference was that of racism toward Aboriginal and migrant women. The conference, which was held at the lllawarra Aboriginal Community Centre on 26-27 May, looked at problems such as the lack of representation of Aboriginal and migrant women on health centre collectives; their exclusion from important areas such as finance and submission writing; and the failure to share skills, information and resources within collectives. Margaret Whelan interviewed several women at the conference for ALR. The interviews emphasised the difficulties facing the collectives and the need for review, both internally and externally of women's health services
