MAV Gender Equality and Preventing Family Violence and all forms of Violence Against Women Network

MAV Gender Equality and Preventing Family Violence and all forms of Violence Against Women Network, formed in 2010, is an inclusive group of local government organisational representatives and key community partners.

There are two levels of membership ‘full members’ who are local government organisational representatives and ‘associate members’ who are key community partners.

Full and associate members work together to progress the task of leading communities in the promotion of gender equality and prevention of family violence and and all forms of violence against women.

Further information about the Network including our statement of commitment, purpose, membership and governance are available in the 2022-2024 terms of reference (PDF - 211KB).
