Healy backs Victoria’s Gender Equality Bill

MILDURA Rural City Council's councillor for gender equality Helen Healy has praised a move requiring the state's public sector, including councils, universities and TAFEs, Victoria Police, Court Services Victoria and the Office of Public Prosecutions, to show they are "actively pursuing" gender equality.

The Gender Equality Bill, to be introduced to Parliament on Tuesday, will require 300 employers to create gender equality action plans and report equal pay, sexual harassment and equal opportunity career progression.
