Recent data indicates that women in Australia could continue to be paid less than men for the next 50 years.

This gender pay gap has far-reaching economic and social implications for society. Ultimately it accumulates into lower income across a women’s lifecycle and means that statistically women have lower lifetime earnings, superannuation and savings. This increases their risk of experiencing poverty and further means that women are left with fewer resources to cope in times of crisis.

When considering the dramatic changes in the national and international employment landscape, and the existing barriers faced by women in workforce participation and progression, it is important that we act now to address the gender pay gap.
