ECONOMIC JUSTICE | Strengthening our Economy by Doing Better by Australian Women
Thursday, 15 August
5:30pm for a 6pm start

Everyone in our society should have a fair go, but thatís not what our economy delivers.

This is the reality in modern Australia is that women are being short changed at every turn. Refuges for women and children fleeing menís violence are chronically underfunded (and have been for decades); the gender pay gap is still hovering at 14.1%; and after a lifetime of unpaid work, Australian women are retiring with roughly 40% less super than men.

Meanwhile, we are accustomed to governments routinely spending big on defence and coal, huge corporations shamelessly side-stepping their tax responsibilities; leaving women and marginalised people with the crumbs.

This is a man-made problem with a feminist way out. Hear Marilyn Waring, feminist economist and author of Counting for Nothing, talk economic justice and bold solutions with investigative journalist Michael West. Moderated by Kerry-Anne Walsh, author of The Stalking of Julia Gillard, this event hosted by the Victorian Womenís Trust asserts that doing right by women will improve life for all Australians ó itís simply a question of how.
