Gender Equity Victoria (GEN VIC) is the Victorian peak body for gender equity, women’s health and the prevention of violence against women.
Equality, wellbeing, and freedom from violence for every woman and girl in every community of Victoria.
To advocate, influence and collaborate to improve outcomes in gender equity, women’s health and in the prevention of violence against women.
What does Gen Vic do?
We advocate for equality for all women, including those living in rural locations, living with disabilities or with HIV, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, immigrant and refugee women and women from LGBTI communities.
Our first priority is to identify and change systems and structures that place women at risk of disadvantage and poor health. To do this, we value and build on the leadership of women and women’s organisations, and work together to reduce all forms of discrimination that intersect with gender inequality.
In line with our vision we will:
- Ensure women’s voices are integral to policy, legislation and services
- Deliver and support coordinated and evidence-informed women’s health promotion activities
- Facilitate collaboration and partnerships
