The 2016 Royal Commission into Family told us that the majority of victims of family violence are women. The report highlighted the importance of promoting gender equality to prevent family violence.
We're serious about stopping violence against women and children. So Victoria has to get serious about gender inequality. It’s time to change the attitudes and behaviours that drive violence against women.
The Victorian Government launched its first gender equality in December 2016.
We work on gender equality and women's leadership by:
- modelling best practice for gender equality in the Victorian public sector
- providing grant funding to the Victorian community to promote gender equality
- running women’s leadership to promote the importance of women as leaders.
