Rainbow Health Australia Submission - National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-2032

The next National Plan provides an historic opportunity for LGBTIQ people to be meaningfully included in the shared effort to end family, domestic and sexual violence. We are pleased that the Draft National Plan commits to ending all forms of genderbased violence, including ensuring that LGBTIQ people of all genders are safe at home, work, school, in the community and online. However, we are concerned that recent leadership and action in this space has not been adequately reflected and included in the Draft National Plan

The first National Plan provided the critical foundation necessary for Australia to become a leader in the global effort to end gender-based violence. However, this Plan (and associated Action Plans) did not provide the focus and action necessary to reduce the significant levels of violence experienced by LGBTIQ people in Australia.
