What Matters to Women in South Australia

2014-05-23

The Premier's Council for Women today launches a survey asking women in South Australia to identify the key issues affecting them.

What matters to women in South Australia gives women an opportunity to let the Council know what affects them – employment, money, family, health, safety, well-being and whatever issues are important to women in South Australia.

The Council provides quality, independent advice to the South Australian Government and advocates for improved opportunities, wellbeing and services for all women in South Australia.

Chair of the Council, Kate Gould said "What Matters to Women will provide the Council with direct input from women in South Australia and guide the Council's choice of issues to focus our efforts on.

"The Council undertook extensive consultations across South Australia in 2010, with more than 250 participants in face-to-face sessions or providing written submissions. The feedback from those sessions provided the Council with clear priorities over 2011-2013. We want to check what women feel is important now and for the next few years.

"The members of the Council are influential women from diverse areas and it is important that we target our efforts in areas where we have knowledge, experience and the ability to advocate on behalf of women."

The survey is open until 13 June 2014.

The survey is anonymous and will only take 10 minutes to complete.
