The Women in NSW reports have been published annually since 2012. The reports examine gender equity against indicators in key areas including education and learning; safety and justice; work, financial security and leadership; and health and wellbeing. The Women in NSW reports also explore key trends and track progress in gender equity over time.

The Reports are now published as a four part series. This allows a greater focus on specific topic areas that play an important role in the lives of NSW women.

Where data allows, these issues are compared across a range of variables including age, residential location, Aboriginal status, and culturally and linguistically diverse background. NSW Government investments and relevant government strategies and initiatives being undertaken to address the issues raised are also highlighted in the report.
