妇女部长 Fiona Richardson 发言稿

很遗憾,不能够和大家一起参加由澳华全国妇女会举办的国际三八妇女节庆祝大会。在此,我向在场来宾们送上我衷心的祝愿,即预祝大会圆满成功。

2016年国际三八妇女节的主题是推进性别平等,该主题建立在联合国的新可持续发展目标的呼声之上,特别是实现性别平等、增强妇女及女童的权能、保障所有女性的广泛及平等教育以及推进终生学习。

我们都知道,性别歧视是针对女性暴力的主导原因,因此,我们需要解决性别歧视的问题以预防暴力。推进性别平等和妇女权力会给女性在参与、自我实现以及领导方面带来积极的影响。

安德鲁斯工党政府目前正在制定性别平等策略,以指导妇女平等社会、公民以及经济参与方面的行动和工作重点。如果你还没有参与到其中,请让我们知道,你希望看到我们为建立一个平等的维多利亚州做出哪些举动。

大家可以登录维洲政府网站获取更多关于性别平等策略的信息。www.dpc.vic.gov.au/gender-equality-have-your-say.

感谢各位的到来,以及见证女性诸多伟大的成就。在此,我鼓励大家对于推动性别平等贡献出自己的一份努力。

 

MESSAGE FROM MINISTER RICHARDSON
TO THE NATIONAL AUSTRALIAN CHINESE WOMEN ASSOCIATION

Sadly, I cannot be with you today for  National Australian Chinese Women’s Associations’  celebration of International Women’s Day , however please accept my best wishes for a wonderful and successful event.

The IWD 2016 theme is “Pledge for Parity”  and builds on the momentum to support the new UN Sustainable Development Goals, especially in achieving gender equality, empowering all women and girls, and ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.  

We know that gender inequality is a leading cause of violence against women and we need to address this as a way to prevent violence.  Promotion of gender equality and women’s rights can have a positive impact on women’s participation, recognition and leadership.  

The Andrews Labor Government is currently developing a Gender Equality Strategy to guide actions and priorities for equal social, civic and economic participation of women.  If you have not already done so, please let us know what you would like to see happen to create an equal Victoria.

You can learn more about the Gender Equality Strategy at www.dpc.vic.gov.au/gender-equality-have-your-say.

Thank you all for attending today and recognising the many great achievements of women and I encourage you all to make your own pledge for parity.
