Established in 1985, the Victorian Women’s Trust (VWT) is a proudly independent feminist organisation. We support women, girls and gender diverse people to thrive.

 

We create social change projects and campaigns; conduct research on the issues affecting our communities; run thought-provoking events; provide mentorship opportunities; and give grants to vital grassroots projects.

Our advocacy work focuses on three high impact areas: economic security, health and safety, and equal representation. Creating change in these areas is key to achieving true gender equality.

VWT is 100% powered by donations from people in the community who share our vision for an equal future for all.
