Status of Women Report Cards

The Australian Government is committed to advancing gender equality as a national priority and making Australia one of the most gender equal societies in the world.

Over the years, Australia has made great progress towards gender equality, however, there is also evidence that in a number of areas progress is slowing or stalled. It is clear that gender inequality is not only holding women back, but is a brake on our progress as a country.

Collecting data, and engaging with what the data tells us, is critical to making the invisible visible, measuring progress and holding ourselves accountable for achieving impact. Data also helps us to understand what life is like for women and girls in Australia and to talk about what we need to do to change the story.

The Government will release a Status of Women Report Card every International Women’s day to shine a light on where progress is slow and more effort is needed.
