We're the independent peak body for organisations, practitioners and individuals promoting gender equity in Victoria.

Our History

Gender Equity Victoria (GEN VIC) evolved from the Women’s Health Association of Victoria (WHAV), which was formed in 1994 as a peak body for the women’s health sector. 

Following the creation of Victoria’s first Gender Equality Strategy, Safe and Strong, WHAV was transformed to provide support to a growing gender equity movement across industries, communities and sectors. 

Our connection to the Women’s Health Services Sector continues through our focus on gender equal health and wellbeing outcomes and through our secretariat support of the Women’s Health Services Council.
