Event description

Description

This full-day workshop explores how gender and gender inequality impact women’s health and their relationship to food. The workshop navigates the complexities of health messaging, body image, and the expectations around of women’s role with food and nutrition. The workshop explores the controversy that exists in public health and health promotion around the approach and key messages that should be adopted in relation to food-related behaviours and body size to promote ‘health’ and prevent illness for women.

  • Gender as a key determinant of health
  • The complex interplay between women’s health, body size and body image, food and physical activity
  • How gender impacts on chronic disease and eating behaviours
  • A gendered approach to health promotion
  • An introduction to sex-disaggregated health data resources, including the Victorian Women’s Health Atlas


Audience: This workshop is designed for professionals or students working in a range of areas including health promotion, mental health, nutrition, social policy, community development, health and support services, women’s health, community health and local and state government.
