With over 400,000 women over the age of 45 at risk of homelessness, the provision of affordable, long-term housing for women is vital to prevent even more older women from falling into homelessness. On the other hand, younger women are finding it more difficult to secure a foothold in the Australian dream of owning a home.
This situation has to change, and with the upcoming federal election, now is the time to understand the connection between housing and gender equality; and why without affordable, long-term housing, women will continue to lag behind.
