Reality check for Australian Working Women
International Women’s Day is a day to reflect upon and honour the work of all the women who fought for the rights and protections that working women have today.
But this year, it’s also a day for a reality check – because this Government has left women behind.
The ACTU has today released a report that shows working women face increasing insecurity, gender pay gap and the fight for safe workplaces.
The report details the fall in Australia’s ranking on gender pay equity, the continued gender segregation of the workforce and the impact of COVID on women workers.
