Divorce and the wellbeing of older Australians /

by Gray, Matthew | Australian Institute of Family Studies | De Vaus, David | Qu, Lixia | Stanton, David.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Australian Institute of Family Studies [AIFS]. Research paper.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010Summary: This paper shows that divorce has a long-lasting, negative impact on wellbeing and the effects appear to persist into later life for both men and women. However, the negative effects of divorce on wellbeing are largely confined to those who do not re-partner and remain single. An important difference between men and women is that for women who are divorced and single, negative effects of divorce are found for general health, vitality and mental health, while for men, there appear to be no effects of divorce on these health measures.Availability: (1)

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow /

by Kelly, Simon.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling 2009Description: PDF.Summary: New research shows that Australians are not saving enough to afford a comfortable retirement yet they are working less and spending more years in retirement than ever before. ; According to this report we now expect to spend around 20 years in retirement after age 65. In 1909 only around half of all Australians lived to age 65. ; The report considers how realistic present retirement expectations are given levels of retirement savings. It considers the impact that increasing future superannuation contributions would have and whether increased superannuation will rescue baby boomer women from the poverty that appears likely to await many of them. ; To address the critical issue of adequate retirement funding the report considers the benefit of increasing the Superannuation Guarantee (SG) from 9 per cent to 12 per cent. In 30 years time the superannuation balances of men are projected to increase by 25 per cent. For women aged 45 to 54, the projected increase is 7 per cent, for women aged 55 to 64 it will be 22 per cent and for women aged 65 and over the estimated increase is 30 per cent.Availability: No items available

Education, first occupation and later occupational attainment : cross-cohort changes among men and women in Britain /

by Bukodi, Erzsebet | University of London. Institute of Education. Centre for ongitudinal Studies.

Publisher: London, U.K. University of London, Institute of Education, Centre for Longitudinal Studies 2009Description: PDF.Other title: University of London. Institute of Education. Centre for.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2009 Bibliography : p. 22-24 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This paper examines cohort and gender differences in occupational attainment in Britain. Using data from the three British Birth Cohort studies, I investigate the process of occupational attainment up to age 34 using a scale based on occupational earnings. Although qualifications appear to have stronger effects on occupational attainment for women than for men at both labour market entry and in the midthirties, I find no consistent evidence that the importance of qualifications is becoming greater across cohorts, either for men or for women. Also, there are no indications that the effects of occupation at labour market entry on men?s and women?s later occupational attainment have been strengthening over time. However, the findings do point to the possibility of cohort-specific effects: the experience of men and women in the 1958 cohort consistently differs from that of those in both the 1946 and 1970 cohorts.Availability: (1)

Feathers in the nest : establishing a supportive environment for women researchers /

by Hartley, Nicole | Dobele, Angela.

Publisher: Australian Educational Researcher 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This paper discusses research examining the attitudes and behaviours of researching women in academia and considers the effect of these factors on successful researching outcomes. The results of this exploratory research highlight in particular, a number of interesting environmental influencers which contribute to enhancing successful work outcomes for academic women researchers. Specifically, personal factors such as, marital status, partner support, age, cultural background and level of organisation (in life) coupled with, research defined factors such as incentive for conducting the research and the existence of research partnerships and/or groups are identified as significant performance influencers. These dimensions appear to facilitate the level of research productivity for women academics based on key performance indicators such as journal/conference paper submissions and successful research funding applications. The potential benefits of this exploratory research are that any correlation between specific self-supporting attitudes or behaviours of successful women academics and effective research outcomes could provide important clues to both emerging and continuing researchers for career development and promotion.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Does the persistence of gender and class inequalities refute the notion that lives are becoming more individualized ? Leading international authorities document how gender inequalities are changing and how many inequalities of earlier eras are being eradicated. However, this book shows there are new barriers and constraints that are slowing progress in attaining a more egalitarian society. Taking the new global economy into account, the expert contributors to this book examine the conflicts between different types of feminisms, revise old debates about ?equality? and ?difference? in the gendered nature of work and care, and propose new and innovative policy solutions.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
