Consultation for a new Queensland Women's Strategy

The Queensland Government is committed to:

  • gender equality across all Queensland communities
  • promoting and protecting women’s rights, interests and wellbeing,
  • recognising and celebrating the achievements of women and girls, and
  • ensuring women’s full social and economic participation in society.

The Queensland Women’s Strategy 2016-21 (the strategy) outlines the Queensland Government’s vision for women and girls, with an emphasis on gender equality and related issues across participation and leadership, economic security, safety, and health and wellbeing.

We are proud of the action taken under the strategy, and public consultation on a new strategy is now underway to build on the progress and achievements made.

Your participation will help build the vision for a gender equal future and how government agencies, industry and the community can collaborate to achieve gender equality.

We will review your feedback and incorporate this into the new strategy, which will be released before the end of 2021.

Queensland gender equality report cards provide a statistical snapshot of the status of gender equality in Queensland across the Strategy’s 4 priority areas.

Watch some Queensland women have their say

During Queensland Women’s Week 2021, we asked some Queensland women 2 questions:

  • How can we make the future better for Queensland women and girls?
  • How can we empower women and girls?


Please email if you have any questions or concerns.
