Scholar's Platform,

Promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment is a core policy priority for the Australian Government and is centred on women’s economic empowerment, women in leadership and the elimination of violence against women.

Australia Awards aims for equal participation by both women and men, offering – together with universities – a range of support to remove different barriers to fair participation.

As part of Australia Awards’ gender and social inclusion efforts, the Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment factsheet has been created to give you, as an Australia Awards scholar, an overview of gender equality in Australia.

The factsheet outlines: Australia’s commitment to gender equality and women’s empowerment; practical and straightforward ways in which we can improve equality and empower women and girls; and resources to develop your knowledge and understanding of gender equality and women’s empowerment.
