Why Women’s Work?

If Sydney were 100 women

My biggest fear is having to work into my
70’s and struggling to find real long-term work
beyond contract or casual positions.

Last year, Sydney Women’s Fund Portrait III Research: Hopes, Dreams and Fears of Sydney Women, found almost half of Sydney women in paid employment earn less than $34K per year, and only 54% of women are in paid work. 

Underlying the struggle is inequity, as 40% of women become carers at the cost of work and security. 

#WomensWork campaign seeks to reshape local attitudes to gender equity, smash stereotypes and build digital connections to financial education for Sydney women.
