Gender Segregation in the Workplace and its Impact on Women's Economic Equality

Gender Segregation in the Workplace and its Impact on Women's Economic Equality

The ACTU is committed to the achievement of gender equality in every Australian workplace for women, including the elimination of the gender pay gap. Pay equity cannot be achieved without significant social policy and regulatory reform. The rules for working women need to change. The ACTU strongly supports the development and implementation of a comprehensive, properly resourced,long- term action plan to meaningfully address the gender pay gap in Australia, including the retirement income gap.
