This is a collection of high-quality multimedia resources (videos and infographics) grouped into four themes: gender equity, preventing violence against women, gender analysis and gender stereotypes.

These resources have been selected to promote their uptake as useful and inspiring additions to presentations, training programs or campaigns. They may also prove valuable in generating conversations with colleagues, family and friends.

The collection highlights recent resources developed by Victorian women’s health services. Women’s Health Victoria acknowledges their generous and expert contributions. WHV also acknowledges the Partners in Prevention at Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria for their extensive multimedia resources supporting respectful relationships education.
