This panel discussion was a feature of the Annual General Meeting of Women's Health Victoria, held on 25 October 2021.

These webinars explored the issue of reproductive coercion and the intersection of sexual and reproductive health and violence against women.
Early menopause can occur either spontaneously (often without a known cause) or as a result of medical treatment, particularly for cancers.

This forum sought to identify ways to build and develop services to better meet the needs of people from communities traditionally underserved by sexual and reproductive health services.
This forum was held on 15 May 2019 at One Roof in Melbourne. The forum was planned and delivered by Women’s Health Victoria (WHV) and brought together 100 stakeholders in women’s sexual and reproductive health (SRH) to hear from key speakers, reflect on recent achievements, and identify shared priorities going forward.
The speakers explore the representation of women and girls in advertising and public spaces and how this perpetuates stereotypes that drive violence against women. Innovative opportunities to improve the representation and inclusion of women in Victoria are also discussed.
