The NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022 will provide a whole-of-government and whole-of-community policy framework with the aim to improve the economic, social and physical wellbeing of women and girls across NSW.

The strategy identifies three priority areas for action:

  • Economic opportunity and advancement
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Participation and empowerment.

The strategy affirms the NSW Government’s commitment to empowering women and girls to have full access to opportunity and choice, be valued for their diversity, recognised for their contribution, and able to participate in all aspects of life freely and safely.

The strategy considers women’s diverse experiences of gender inequality and discrimination, informed by the views of community members, agencies and groups across NSW.

To support the strategy, the Year One Action Plan (the first of four annual action plans) has been released, which outline initiatives under the three priority areas. Where appropriate, the action plan includes agreed targets and outcomes to enable progress to be measured.
