The NSW Government has just launched the NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022.
The strategy is a whole of government approach to advancing social and economic equality and equity between women and men, girls and boys.
The Strategy will promote opportunities for women and girls across NSW under three priority areas:
- Economic opportunity and advancement
- Health and wellbeing
- Participation and empowerment.
The NSW Women’s Strategy considers women’s diverse experiences of gender inequality and discrimination, informed by the views of community members, agencies and groups across NSW.
To support the NSW Women’s Strategy, the Year One Action Plan (the first of four annual action plans) has been released, which outlines initiatives under each of the three key priority areas.
We all benefit when women and girls have full access to opportunity and choice, are healthy and well and are able to participate in all aspects of life freely and safely.
The launch of the NSW Women’s Strategy is another step forward for the people of NSW and will contribute to a society where women and men are respected and treated as equals.
