On 4 March 2020, Stronger Together: WA’s Plan for Gender Equality (Stronger Together) was launched, alongside the first Implementation and Action Plan.

Following the release of the ten-year plan for gender equality, a State of Emergency was declared and Government resources were directed to ensuring the safety, and social and economic recovery of women disproportionally impacted by COVID-19. This has resulted in delays to some Stronger Together actions, while also contributing to more actions specific to a COVID-19 response.

An interim report has been released that provides a brief summary of work being undertaken across Government to progress Stronger Together and support women during the COVID-19 recovery.

A more comprehensive report on the outcomes of the first Action Plan is expected to be released later in 2021, together with the second Action Plan for 2021‑2025.
