Women's Safety Strategy

The five-year Women's Safety Strategy was the first comprehensive strategy on violence against women by any Victorian Government for 17 years. It brought all Ministers and government departments together, working within a single policy framework. It was developed by the Office of Women's Affairs over two years and is the result of extensive consultation.

The Strategy consisted of four related parts:

  • Women's Safety Strategy: A Policy Framework set the principles and policy directions for addressing violence against women in Victoria over the next five years
  • Acting on the Women's Safety Strategy outlined specific initiatives the government undertook to reduce violence against women
  • Women's Safety, Women's Voices presented personal experiences of violence in women's own words
  • Making Women Safer is a brochure outlining some of the Women's Safety Strategy's initiatives and related services.
