Constituency Question – Gender Equality Strategy

Mr CARROLL (Niddrie) — (Question 6759) My constituency question is to the Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, and I note the minister is at the table. I also note that I am asking this question on the first United Nations International Day of Women and Girls in Science. I ask: how can my constituents have input into the Victorian government’s development of a gender equality strategy for Victoria, which was recently announced by the minister? I understand the strategy will guide actions and priorities for the government to work alongside the community towards a common goal of equal social, civic and economic participation for women in society. I look forward to seeing the minister’s answer so I can pass it on to my constituents advising how they can have an important role in the development of this very important gender equality strategy for Victoria.
