Australia's Constitution is a sexist instrument of governance enacted by men who prohibited women from speaking to or voting on its enactment, which has never been amended to accommodate equality in the modern world and provides by original intent for men's legislatures only to which women are admitted under supervision inclusive of leadership and a men's jurisdiction at law only.

Why would indigenous Australians with a tradition of women as their own bosses want recognition in a constitution which treats women as second-class citizens, without substantial reform to enable governance conducted by agreement between women's and men's legislatures, courts and corporate committees?

Indigenous Australians aren't stupid.
