30 Years of Gippsland Women’s Health

Presented by Gippsland Women's Health

Join us for the Gippsland Women’s Health 30th Anniversary AGM! With special guests Jess Hill, Nyadol Nyuon OAM and Antoinette Braybrook.  

Thursday 24 November | 5PM | Little Theatre

2022 marks 30 years of Gippsland Women’s Health. After a six-week roadshow throughout Gippsland, the GWH team are celebrating by bringing three of Australia’s inspiring, powerhouse women to our region, to discuss gender equality, prevention of violence against women and women’s rights.  

From the 12th of September to the 21st of October 2022, the GWH team hit the road with one clear goal - to connect with women and understand first-hand what it is they need to support their safety, health and wellbeing. 

The GWH Regional Roadshow was an opportunity to celebrate the work of Gippsland Women’s Health, to showcase the diversity of Gippsland and to reconnect with our local communities.  

The outcome? A clear understanding that our Gippsland women urgently need better access to quality health care and services. Women who need to improve their sexual and reproductive health knowledge. Women fighting for gender equality. And most evident of all - women who need our communities and leaders to commit to the elimination of violence against women.  

Our AGM is an opportunity for our Gippsland community to come together and celebrate 30 Years of GWH. Joining us on stage will be:  

  • Jess Hill – award winning journalist, author and producer who specialises in reporting on coercive control and gendered violence. About Jess Hill

  • Nyadol Nyuon OAM – lawyer, award-winning human rights advocate, media commentator and writer, who was born and raised in refugee camps. About Nyadol Nyuon OAM

  • Antoinette Braybrook – CEO of Djirra, change agent and advocate, who gives voice and visibility to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experiencing family violence. About Antoinette Braybrook.

 

Experience an inspiring evening of motivation, insights and progress at Gippsland Performing Arts Centre as we discuss the critical need for change to create a gender-equal future.
