Women's Plan

Published: Wednesday, 15 May 2019 at 3:01:38 PM

The State Government is developing a plan to address gender inequality in Western Australia.

While significant advances have been made to remove barriers to women’s full economic and social participation, there is still a long way to go to bring about lasting solutions.

This plan will provide a framework for coordinated action by government, businesses, organisations and individuals with practical steps to advance gender equality.

The plan will focus on four priority areas:

  • health and wellbeing
  • safety and justice
  • economic independence
  • leadership

The plan will be launched in 2020 and will set the agenda for achieving gender equality over the next 10 years.

All Western Australians are encouraged to have a say and they particularly want to hear from people who are vulnerable or marginalised in the community.

Help shape the plan and have your say by 30 June 2019.
