Why Victoria needs a Gender Equal Recovery – GEN VIC Pre-Budget Statement

[Source Gender Equity Victoria GEN VIC]

In a striving effort to influence the Victorian State Budget before it’s handed down on 24th November 2020, last week GEN VIC released its 20/21 pre-budget statement, “Why Victorian Needs a Gender Equal Recovery.” The statement builds on GEN VIC’s joint statement and 10 Things Government Can Do for a Gender Equal Recovery, and tells a story of the impacts of COVID19 on women and the investment that was required to work towards gender equality in Victoria. The statement recognises that Victorian has suffered from the absence of focused analysis and advocacy and that investment in gender equity has been extremely modest, even before COVID19 hit, and that there is a need to correct this historic underinvestment to build back better during recovery.
