We all want to live in a community where we feel

safe, valued and able to reach our full potential –where we are all equal.

Respect 2040 is a collective movement to bring together community members, businesses, groups, clubs, and organisations across south-west Victoria to work towards a vision for a thriving, equal community.

When people of all genders have equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities, this is called gender equality

Let’s get started

Great work to achieve gender equality has been going on in Victoria for decades – and now is your chance to get on board!

The solution exists!

Let’s get started
Women’s Health and Wellbeing Barwon South West has proudly developed this website. Respect 2040 is a social movement welcoming the contribution of many people and partners from across the region.

We proudly acknowledge Aboriginal people as the first peoples, Traditional Owners and custodians of the lands and waters on which this work occurs. We acknowledge and respect the wisdom, living culture and unique role that Aboriginal people hold, and saw them thrive for thousands of years. We also acknowledge the ongoing leadership role of the Aboriginal community on gender equality and the prevention of violence against women. As First Peoples, our Aboriginal communities are best placed to determine their own culturally appropriate path to gender equality.

We acknowledge the support of the State Government of Victoria Office for Women - Free from Violence Women’s Health Service Capacity Building Fund.
