Where are we heading?

In many ways, we are clear on what the challenges are – this paper provides an overview of the key issues and statistics that show the status of gender equality in Australia and where we might focus our effort. But we also want the Strategy to provide a vision we can work towards and support a conversation about why gender equality is important for this country and what it could mean for us to get there.


  • What would a gender equal Australia mean for you, your family, and community?
  • What should be the role of government, business and the community in achieving gender equality?
  • What are your priorities for achieving gender equality in Australia?

Consider the above prompts in your responses and as you reflect on each section below.
