As well as being a fundamental ethical right, equal opportunity for women in relation to income, wealth and employment, improves women’s social and economic security which in turn can enhance their personal freedom, and develop many beneficial domino effects such as a reduction in reliance on government benefits and a reduction in child poverty rates.
NATSEM researchers have considerable knowledge and expertise in gender equality research and issues relating to Australian women. Research projects have included estimating the impact of persistent wage gaps on the Australian economy and key determinants of the wage gap in Australia; profiling divisions in unpaid work, labour outcomes and life time wages; assessing the impact of the Global Financial Crisis on Australian Women; and understanding labour dynamics and fertility patterns for women.
NATSEM researchers have conducted a number of high profile research projects in this area, funded through commissioned research from the government, community and private sectors.
