The Changes › More mothers in the workforce – ‘part-time norm’ › Rise of female breadwinners – ‘rise of wives’ and ‘breadwomen’ › More self-employed women – ‘mumpreneurs’

The Policy Changes 1. Right to request flexible work arrangements (Fair Work Act, 2009) 2. Right to request extension to unpaid parental leave (Fair Work Act, 2009) 3. Pay equity – equal remuneration principles (Fair Work Act, 2009) 4. Low paid bargaining stream (Fair Work Act, 2009) 5. Paid Parental Leave (Jan 1, 2011) 6. Dad and Partner Pay (Jan 2013) 7. Workplace Gender Equality Act (setting new standards and benchmarks, 2013 – being reviewed now)

Change and Continuity - Women are more educated than ever (and than men) - Women are entering the workforce, and staying in it, in greater numbers than ever - Women's experience at work is different to men’s -> hours gaps, career gaps, pay gaps, superannuation gaps - Some policy advances have been made but challenges remain - Women’s experience in the labour market is changing - but this is not reflected at home 15

HAPPY IWD 2014 16
