ERA’s Pre-budget Submission 2022

11 February 2022

ERA urges the government to place care at the centre of our economy by, among other things, addressing disparities in women-dominated care sectors, tackling climate change (including through significant emission reductions), applying a gender lens to climate change and disaster planning, mitigation and response, and by making affordable housing a priority.

Our recommendations for the 2022 budget are concrete, ambitious and potentially transformative actions that can achieve immediate progress towards gender equality. They are about social infrastructure changes needed to reduce women’s financial vulnerability and increase women’s workforce participation and economic independence over the long term.
