It’s time to take violence against women and gender inequality seriously.

Australia is in the midst of a crisis of gendered violence and harassment. 

On average, one woman in Australia is killed each week by a current or former partner. Forty per cent of women have experienced workplace harassment, and women as young as 12 have reported sexual harassment in public.

One in three women experience abuse in their lifetime, while First Nations women, women from culturally diverse backgrounds, women in regional areas, older women, LGBTIQ women, and women with a disability, are even more likely to experience violence.

The key driver of these persistently high rates of violence is gender and financial inequality.

All women have the right to live free from harassment, violence and abuse, have agency to make decisions, and have the financial and housing security needed to live a good life.

The Greens have a holistic plan to address the conditions that perpetuate violence against women, create safe pathways to escape violence, improve women’s economic security, and ensure no-one is turned away when they need help.  

We will:

  • Fund a $12 billion National Plan for Ending Violence Against Women and Children, and a standalone National Plan for First Nations Women. These plans will centre diverse victim-survivors voices, set measurable targets and hold the government to account for meeting them.
  • Support prevention programs, including investing $477 million in comprehensive expert-led, age-appropriate Respectful Relationships education in all public schools
  • Double funding to legal services so people can get help when they need it
  • Support those fleeing abusive relationships by providing 10 days paid domestic violence leave and $10,000 Survivor Grants 
  • Adopt all recommendations of the Respect@Work and Set the Standard reports to make all workplaces safe 
  • Boost paid parental leave and make it fairer for families
  • Close the gender pay gap by increasing wages, valuing care work, and making childcare free
  • Supporting women-led businesses
  • Fund social and affordable housing so everyone has a home
