The survey identified the most commonly listed key issues for respondents were domestic violence, health, equality and safety.

In developing the content for the First Action Plan, the Office for Women has worked with representatives from government directorates through a series of workshops and has consulted a range of stakeholder groups. These include Winnunga Nimmityjah Aboriginal Health Service, Canberra Multicultural Community Forum, Women with Disabilities ACT, Council of the Ageing (COTA), Women’s Centre for Health Matters (WCHM), Domestic Violence Crisis Service and Canberra Rape Crisis Centre.

The Ministerial Advisory Council on Women will continue to be consulted as the First Action Plan is being developed.
