The National Foundation for Australian Women has released (24.5.21) a series of papers analysing this year’s federal budget and its impact upon women through various policy areas.
‘NFAW is a feminist organisation, independent of party politics. These position papers have been developed by NFAW’s Social Policy Committee to analyse the 2021-2022 Federal Budget and its impacts on women and therefore on the community and the nation as a whole.
‘This year, as women are demanding change, and the economy is reshaped for a post-COVID world, the Government had the opportunity to invest in real structural solutions which would boost female employment, address the gender pay gap and create real productivity gains through higher wages in the female dominated care industries workforce. We break down each aspect of the budget to see how women will fare.’
