Women's Voices: Australia is based on documentary footage during the research stay of literary documentary filmmaker Barbora Baron at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Over the course of five months, she conducted over twenty documentary interviews with prominent artists, writers, filmmakers, activists, photographers, scientists and journalists, with whom she researched women's issues regardless of their cultural differences - asked about their position in society, expectations for them or the possibilities of their professional application. The filmed material deals with various aspects of the documentary profession, but also more general social issues - for example, the position of women in today's Western world, influenced by the second wave of feminism in the 1970s.

Among the personalities who tell their story is, for example, the prominent feminist Anne Summers, who describes her own abortion as one of the initiating moments of her activism. Anthropology professor Diane Bell tells the story of the struggle for respect for women in science. Alison Whittaker's story is the story of a young Australian lesbian poet from regional rural communities to Harvard rights. Publisher Susan Hawthorne discusses her transformation from an employee of the global publishing house Penguin to a publisher of non-current titles. The story of Olga Horak and Halina Robinson reflects on the subject of the Holocaust - while Olga survived five concentration camps, Halina was thrown over the wall of the Warsaw Ghetto and was on the run from the Nazis for eighteen months. All the women were portrayed by Dita Pepe.
