The focus on women in physics in Australia has increased substantially since the last report at the International Conference of Women in Physics (ICWIP) in 2014. This is evident in many aspects; however, the number of women studying physics has remained static at levels that are far too low. In addition, many different organizations and groups are actively working on combating stereotype problems in culture as well as supporting women in their professional career path. The outlook for women in physics in Australia is now very promising.
