Advocacy is one of our key strategies to change the social, political and economic structures that create inequities for women in Victoria. We advocate on behalf of, and in collaboration with, our members and the women of Victoria.
Our advocacy efforts are focussed on:
- Advancing gender equity within Victoria
- Promoting better health outcomes for women
- Preventing violence against women before it happens
- Coordinating community action to advance gender equity, promote health and prevent violence against women.
GEN VIC is advocating to ensure the full implementation of the Victorian Gender Equality Strategy, Safe and Strong. GEN VIC is funded by the Victorian Government to assist in the implementation of the Strategy.
GEN VIC runs regular campaigns aligned with our strategic priorities and role to ensure that women’s voices are integral to policy, legislation, and services.
GEN VIC supports campaigns that are aligned with our vision for equality, wellbeing and freedom from violence for every woman and girl in every community of Victoria.
GEN VIC advises both the state and federal governments on policy and legislation for women’s health, safety and wellbeing.
GEN VIC provides a yearly budget analysis of the Victorian Government’s investment in gender equity, women’s health, the prevention violence against women.
