Women’s Health Grampians (WHG) is a strong feminist voice for the promotion of women’s equality, health and wellbeing in the Grampians region. We work collaboratively with a network of partners to drive lasting change on issues that impact women and families in our communities, including:
- Preventing Violence Against Women
- Promoting Sexual and Reproductive Health
- Working towards Gender Equality
Our members support us in promoting gender equity and creating respectful communities. This includes working to address the negative stereotypes, assumptions and attitudes that lead to discrimination, disadvantage and violence against women.
We use an inclusive definition of women that includes all people who identify as women. We acknowledge the high rates of violence against trans women and gender-diverse people and the myriad ways that gendered norms, stereotypes and discrimination contribute to inequality and oppression. We acknowledge and work to dismantle the systems of oppression born of and perpetuated by colonisation, and are committed to listening to and working with Aboriginal peoples to build systems of inclusion.
Membership is open to anyone who:
- Supports our work and the rules of our Constitution
- Identifies as female
- Is over 18, and
- Lives or works in the Grampians region.
Members will receive our quarterly newsletters, voting rights at our Annual General Meeting, and invitations to key events and forums.
