Equal Pay Day: September 1, 2011

On average Australian female GPs earn 25% less than male GPs according to MABEL research. Australian Bureau of Statistics figures show that the average gender pay gap is 17.2% – 17.2% less money for the same hours worked. To close this gap, women would have to work an extra 63 days to match what men earn. Equal Pay Day, initiated by EOWA in 2008, is an annual event symbolically timed to coincide with the expiry of this extra period calculated from financial year-end.
