With the #MeToo and #blacklivesmatter campaigns, it feels as if the world is finally cracking open for human beings to speak their truths.

What is widely known as Australia Day passed in January—the day in 1788 when the British first stuck a colonial flag in the soil. To many Indigenous Australians, it is known as Invasion Day or Survival Day.
