Today GEN VIC asked me to illustrate a collection of scenes to help communicate their budget submission, Towards a Gender Equal Recovery 2021/2022.
I received briefs and data from on their report, developed after months of consultation with their member organisations — 42 gender equality entities — and turned the data into inclusive, representative, hopeful illustrations.
“Women lost 109,000 jobs last year across Victoria. That’s why we have prioritised creating jobs for women to get them back to work. For example, we want government to triple the gendered violence prevention workforce. This would create 500 jobs needed to address a shadow pandemic and fulfil recommendations made by the Royal Commission into Family Violence”
