The 7.30 report did a great report last week highlighting how vulnerable women, especially older women are to homelessness. Too many women are homeless. Lack financial opportunity and unequal pay has its part to pay in rendering women homeless. View 7.30 Report for more details.
One thing women have learnt is that the system can not be trusted to deliver fair pay and equal remuneration for women. Women earn 18.2 per cent less than men and have less than half the Superannuation savings. The Daily Life’s Jenna Price has written a fantastic article on the Microsoft CEO ‘s gender foot in mouth moment .
Yet again another article on women going into their old age severely economically disdavantged because they have far less Superannuation than men. It time to do something about it. Knowing it is happening is not enough.
