Equality Talks: Imagining a gender-equal future - the next generation share their visions for a fairer, more inclusive tomorrow

What’s your vision for a more gender-equal future, where all Victorians are respected, valued and able to contribute to the community we share?

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we heard from five young Victorians as they explored their ideas for a better tomorrow.
