Our work aims to advance the health of women in Australia and internationally, to reduce inequity and create positive change. We do this in the following ways:

  • Through our writing and research, we generate evidence about how gender intersects with socio-economic position, ethnicity, disability, migration and other factors that cause inequities.
  • We prioritise engagement with policy makers and service providers and have expertise in participatory approaches that explicitly aim to drive social change and reduce inequity.
  • We measure population-level differences on key health outcomes between women and men on significant national issues such as housing affordability stress.
  • We work closely with members of those communities with the most at stake in our research, including members of migrant and refugee communities, people with disabilities, and people on low incomes.
  • We contribute to training and mentoring graduate students and early career researchers.
