Gender equality issues in Australia

Presented by the Australian Bureau of Statistics

In this video podcast, Ms Elizabeth Broderick (Sex Discrimination Commissioner from the Australian Human Rights Commission) and Dr Paul Jelfs (First Assistant Statistician, Social, Health & Labour Division at the Australian Bureau of Statistics) discuss gender equality issues in Australia.

Commissioner Broderick outlines some of the main areas of gender differences including the disparity in retirement savings between men and women and how unpaid caring impacts the lives of women. She highlights the important role that initiatives such as the ABS Gender Indicators product play in informing policy makers, researchers and the larger community on Australia’s progress toward gender equality.
