The 2017-18 data is in and it shows that access to paid parental leave has stalled for carers of both genders. This is a disappointing result, as employees of both genders try to combine work with their caring responsibilities as a normal part of life.

In the lead-up to the announcement of the 2020 Australia Day Order of Australia awards, community organisation Honour a Woman and the Workplace Gender Equality Agency are encouraging Australians to keep nominating more women for Australian honours awards.

The national gender pay gap remains stable at 14.0%, a drop of just 0.1pp over the last six months. This year, [Un] Equal Pay Day will be on 28 August 2019, marking the 59 additional days from the end of the previous financial year that women must work, on average, to earn the same amount as men earnt that year.

Each year, many different countries across the globe mark their own versions of Equal Pay Day in the calendar year and put their own spin on how to highlight the gender pay gap.
