The Union of Australian Women (Vic) has lobbied Governments at State and Federal level for social justice and equality for over 65 years. We work in a number of ways including letter writing, signing petitions, supporting recommendations by the Equality Rights Alliance (ERA) and making our own submissions. Major recent submissions by the UAW (Vic) have included:

>> Federal Government: Parental Leave - Submission on the Draft Report of the Productivity Commission (2008) written by Carmen Green

>> Victoria: Royal Commission into Family Violence (2015)

>> State Government Victoria: Gender Equality Consultation Paper (2016) written by Cath Morrison


Adequate parental leave, reducing family violence and increasing gender equality have been central to the purpose and efforts of the UAW and have been the subject of concerted campaigns by us, joining together with many other women’s organisations.
