Gender Impact Assessment

As part of their gender advocacy work, Women’s Health Victoria collates topic-based Gender Impact Assessments (GIAs). These assessments demonstrate the disconnection between gendered evidence and policy and practice that does not consider gender (is gender blind).

The purpose of a GIA is to inform and strengthen existing or proposed policies in order to neutralise any discriminatory effects, and to promote gender equality as an outcome. GIAs are clear, concise tools that highlight gender differences and the absence of gender-responsive policy and practice.
