Women Victoria is sharing the stories of inspirational women. These stories invite us to look at the ways we can make the world a better, more equitable place for everyone, by challenging and calling out gender bias and inequality in all its forms.
This year, more than ever, we should be recognising women. Women have stood on the frontline of the pandemic, as healthcare workers, educators, caregivers, community organisers, and innovators.
Nearly 4 in 5 workers in health care and social assistance across the nation are women. This includes our nurses, midwives, doctors, pharmacists, allied health, aged care, social workers, and community welfare workers. And more than two thirds of our teachers are women.
Women have also been at the forefront of Victorian community volunteer efforts as we work towards reconnection and recovery. In doing so, they have supported the physical and mental health of the entire community.
It truly has been women who have kept Victoria moving through the COVID-19 crisis and that is why Women Victoria is sharing the stories of inspirational women in the videos below and across its social channels.
Their stories also invite us to look the ways we can make the world a better place for women and the ways we can challenge and call out gender bias and inequality in all its forms.
