Projects & Initiatives

The VMWS has embarked on several initiatives and projects over the years. These aim to either shed further light on the issues that we advocate for, or assist medical women both professionally and personally.

Job Sharing Database

Open to all genders, our confidential Job Sharing Database enables part-timers to be matched with each other

Skills Matrix Directory

Connect with other VMWS members on a professional and/or personal basis, whether you're looking for someone to do research with, a mentor, or someone to help you develop important relationships!

The VMWS Archiving Project

We have a rich history and we celebrate it proudly, as we are fortunate to have a long line of creative and empowered women that paved the way for us since the 1800s. We collect, digitise and aim to share their stories.

Marvellous Medical Women

This project documents the stories of medical women from the Victorian Medical Women’s Society who graduated from 1930-1970.

Happy Healthy Women, Not Just Survivors

A joint advocacy initiative between the Australian Women’s Coalition (AWC), the Australian Federation of Medical Women (AFMW) and VMWS, this past project addresses how to safely and effectively meet the needs of sexual violence survivors over a lifetime.
