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).

It finds that 'being a woman' was the single largest reason for the gender pay gap (60%). This includes complicated factors such as women's choices of careers, jobs and work hours, consideration of caring responsibilities, women's work motivations, bargaining power and appetite for risk, as well as discrimination against women that occurs in the workplace. Other contributing factors such as industry segregation and labour force history impact on the gender pay gap.Availability: (1)

Valuing care in Australia : achieving pay equity in the social and community services sector /

by Allebone, James | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence and Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne 2011Description: p. 14.Other title: Social policy working paper ; no. 15.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography : p. 12-14Summary: In the context of an historic Equal Remuneration Case, this paper argues that the low pay endemic to the social and community services sector in Australia is primarily the result of the sector's volunteer past and highly feminised character, and represents a serious undervaluing of care. In the likely event that Fair Work Australia grants a substantial award increase, state and federal governments must subsidise additional costs for employers in this vital sector. Broader questions about welfare provision are also raised.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
