ACT Women's Plan 2016-26

Reporting against Year One of the First Action Plan

The ACT Women’s Plan 2016-26 is underpinned and guided by key principles:

  • Equality - of opportunity, access, security and independence
  • Non-discrimination - freedom from any form of discrimination, including assignment of stereotypical gender based roles
  • Intersectionality - key to understanding and responding to the needs of all women and girls is an understanding of the intersection of gender with other factors such as race, culture, disability, sexuality, experience of violence and economic status; and how women can face multiple and compounding levels of discrimination and vulnerability as a consequence
  • Everyone’s responsibility- the necessity to work with women and men, across government, with non-government organisations, business and community to achieve gender equality
  • Diversity - every woman is valued for her uniqueness
  • Safety - all women and girls have the right to safety and to live without fear.
