We will continue to integrate intersectionality across reform activity and programs, to deliver our commitment to Aboriginal self-determination, continuing to listen and learn from lived experience to build an inclusive and accessible system for all Victorians.
Intersectionality recognises that people are diverse, that characteristics such as race, class, and gender can combine to create overlapping systems of discrimination and disadvantage
In a family violence context, Aboriginal self-determination is a systemic shift of power and control from government and the non-Aboriginal service sector to Aboriginal communities
Listening to people with lived experience of family violence will deliver better outcomes for Victorians
