This strategy builds on the solid foundation set by Safe and strong.
Gender equality is not a ‘women’s issue’. The effects of gender inequality touch all parts of our community. Gender stereotypes negatively affect people of all genders.
Our equal state takes an intersectional approach to gender equality that considers compounding forms of disadvantage or discrimination.
Gender inequality underlies family violence and violence against women. This violence continues to be a significant risk to the lives of Victorian women.
Our equal state has a strong focus on improving outcomes for Victorian women, girls and gender diverse people.
