Gender Inequality in the Grampians Region Report
Women’s Health Grampians has released a new report, Gender Inequality in the Grampians region.
This report provides, for the first time, a current and local overview of the prevalence of gender inequality in our region.
The report measured the rate at which the Grampians region is progressing towards equality in the areas of employment, leadership and unpaid work, and uncovered significant and persistent gaps between the experiences of men and women.
Based on current trends, the report projects that it could take the Grampians:
- 60 years to close the gender gap in full time employment
- 89 years to close the gender gap in unpaid domestic work
- 168 years to close the gender gap in unpaid child care
These findings represent a call to action for the Grampians region to challenge the entrenched gender stereotypes and structural barriers that prevent us from reaching gender equality.
The CoRE Alliance is a group of over 75 local organisations, networks and clubs committed to taking action to promote gender equality and prevent violence against women. For more information or to join the CoRE Alliance contact Women’s Health Grampians on 5322 4100.
