Labor Premier Jacinta Allan of Victoria, the second most populous state in Australia, announced on Monday that a new position had been created in her government: “Parliamentary Secretary for Men’s Behaviour Change.”

Allan selected Tim Richardson, the State Labor MP for Mordialloc, to fill the position.

“Tim Richardson will become Parliamentary Secretary for Men’s Behaviour Change, continuing the Allan Labor Government’s priority to make Victoria a safer place for women and children and work to end the tragedy of deaths of Victorian women at the hands of men,” Allan stated. “This is the first position of its kind in Australia – and will focus largely on the influence the internet and social media have on boys’ and men’s attitudes towards women and building respectful relationships.”

Richardson declared his job would entail “modelling positive role models for boys and men and ensuring we break away from gendered based stereotypes and building respectful relationships.”


“In Victoria, a parliamentary secretary earns nearly $244,991, which includes a base salary of $198,839 plus an extra $46,152 for extra duties,” The Epoch Times noted.

Earlier this month, Allan wrote, “We’re enshrining in law that every Budget must have a statement on gender equality.”

Victoria has “the most radical policies on transgenderism, children’s gender dysphoria and euthanasia of any state in Australia,” Terry Barnes opined in The Spectator, adding, “… to assume, as Allan has, that all men are toxic perpetrators-in-waiting is both lazy feminist and identity politics, and an insult to the overwhelming majority of men who deplore family violence of any sort as utterly repugnant, and who strive to be kind and loving husbands, partners and fathers.”

Victoria’s health department released a women’s health survey last year which stated, “You are invited to complete this survey based on your experiences as a woman or girl managing your health. … Any references to a woman or women or girl or girls include: cisgender women, transgender women, transgender men, non-binary people and gender diverse people who may be perceived as women, female or feminine (regardless of expression or identity), who may experience similar health issues and/or gender-based discrepancies in care.”
