Description: Although over the past 20 years the participation of women in the workplace increased considerably, up 10 per cent to 58.2 per cent in 2008, Australian women face an ever-increasing juggling act. Women have increased pressure to balance work, motherhood, households and families. While the gender gap has narrowed, there is still much to be done as a man still has the potential to earn $2.4 million over a lifetime compared to a woman who earns nearly $1 million less. The report focuses on women in Australia today, how their social and economic status has changed and evolved over time, and what differences can be seen between them and their male counterparts.
