We are at a unique moment in our history for women’s wellbeing and gender equity.
Victorian Women’s Health Services are calling upon all parties at this November’s Victorian state election to take action on key pillars of policy. From our position in Victoria as health promoters, primary prevention practitioners and specialists in intersectional equity, these vital points of action will ensure all Victorians can reap the rewards of an equitable society and economy.
Support us as we call on the Victorian Government to prioritise public health, gender equality and wellbeing in this year’s state budget.
Regionally, we’ve been encouraging participatory democracy, with initiatives like the Hearing Benambra community consultation. Specific to the Victorian Women’s Health Services’ joint campaign, we wanted to find out where our local candidates stand on the policy points articulated by the Victorian women’s health sector, so we sent out a survey and put together the responses we received in a candidate scorecard:
