Women's Organisations on the NSW North Coast

10.00am | June 03, 2017




I was honoured to meet with Business and Professional Women (BPW) Coffs Harbour, the Coffs Harbour Business Women’s Network, Zonta Coffs Harbour and the Country Women’s Association to discuss the economic issues faced by women.

Women retire with almost half the amount of superannuation as their male counterparts, they are paid less in many comparable jobs and feminised sectors are paid less than non-feminised industries. These energetic women are taking practical steps locally to address these issues, and generously shared their suggestions about how a Federal Labor Government might approach this enduring challenge.
