I am thrilled about our announcement that the next Labor Government will boost women’s super by $400 million.This is an important step in reducing inequality between men and women in retirement by committing to paying super on parental leave. Too many women retire in poverty after a lifetime of caring and serving others.
I am grateful to have worked with many great people on this campaign. Thank you to the trade unionists, super trustees, and women's activists who've campaigned so hard for this. You helped make the Senate Inquiry into this issue possible, and you haven't stopped since. Together we produced real change and we'll keep going until women are truly equal.
