Many Australians are not aware that we too had Segregation Laws in our recent history. This book tells the true story of the author’s sister and her best friend. They were segregated in class, at the local pool, and the cinema, because of the law. Say Yes is a story about how the events surrounding the historic 1967 Referendum played out in the everyday lives of two young girls.
Once there were two little girls who were best friends. They did everything together. As they got older they weren't allowed to do the same things anymore. Because they looked different. Because of the law.
This is a story about the landmark 1967 Referendum, the two women who came together to change the law ... and how the Australian people said YES
