Dear Attorney,

Review into the Treatment of Women in the Australian Defence Force – Phase 1

I am pleased to present to you the Commission’s report of the Review into the Treatment of Women at the Australian Defence Force Academy.

This Report represents the first stage of a broader review into the Treatment of Women in the Australian Defence Force.

The Report is the first independent review into the Academy since its inception in 1986 and has provided a significant opportunity to examine the importance of women to the future leadership of the Australian Defence Force.

Yours sincerely,
Elizabeth Broderick
Sex Discrimination Commissioner
