Great Expectations: Achieving gender equity in our lifetime
We’ve come a long way since women fought for, and won, the right to vote. Despite the progress, we still have a long road to travel before we reach gender equality in Australia.

Yes, Australia.

Figures released by Impact Economics and Policy, suggest that Australian women engage in 43% less paid work than Australian men and undertake 81% more unpaid work - largely due to carrying the economy’s unpaid care burden. Workers with Bachelor degree qualifications or above in female dominated industries, earn 30% less per-hour than workers in male dominated industries. Workers with Certificate III/IV in female dominated industries earn 36% less per-hour than a worker in a male dominated industry.

There is still work to be done.

Join Dr Angela Jackson, Lead Economist from Impact Economics, to explore how we can achieve gender equality in this lifetime.

The Giblin Lecture is a partnership between the University of Tasmania and the Economics Society of Australia – Tasmania Branch. It is named for the eminent Australian economist, Lyndhurst Falkiner Giblin.
