Gender Equity Victoria (GEN VIC) is the Victorian peak body for gender equity, women’s health and the prevention of violence against women.
We advocate for equality, wellbeing, and freedom from violence for every woman and girl in every community of Victoria.
We have tracked the Victorian government's investment in gender equality across the past decade, and investment has suffered from the absence of focused analysis and advocacy. With the exception of recent investments in family violence prevention, programs and services that empower women, seek to address women’s economic insecurity, other forms of gendered violence and the unequal health consequences of inequality have been exceptionally modest.
To correct historic under-investment in gender equity, GEN VIC calls on the Victorian government to increase its 20/21 Budget to $21.6M to Strengthen Gender Equity in the Community and to Boost Women’s Health Services.Learn more!
