EOWA has announced the date for Equal Pay Day 2011 will be 1st September.
ABS data places the gender pay gap at 17.2%. To close this gap, women would have to work an extra 63 days to match what men earn. Symbolically , Equal Pay Day is timed to coincide with the expiry of this extra period calculated from year-end. This annual event highlights the serious issue of gender pay inequity in Australia. Women’s pay has remained between 82-85% of men’s pay since 1990. We encourage you to use Equal Pay Day to address the gender pay gap in your organisation.
Women Lawyers Association of NSW encourage you to wear something purple on 1st September and show your support.
