Updated June 25, 2018 08:53:57 The Liberal Party’s Julia Gillard is seen by many as one of the most “inclusive” politicians in Australia, and the former prime minister’s recent election win over Labor’s Kevin Rudd was considered a victory for women.
The question is: which of the three women in the prime ministership is the most inclusive?
A series of articles published this week in the Australian National University’s journal Gender and Power reveals that Julia Gillards policies have made it easier for women to get ahead, and have also benefited the nation’s economic success.
The article looks at how Julia Gillars policies have increased economic growth and inequality, and how her policies have benefited women.
“The Labor Party has been very much a party of the rich and the powerful, and this has had a huge impact on the fortunes of women and children,” said Dr Catherine Laffey, Associate Professor in Sociology at the University of Queensland.
Women have lower wages, less employment, lower pay than men.” “
However, we also know that there is a gender gap in the economy.
Women have lower wages, less employment, lower pay than men.”
Dr Laffy said that women’s economic status was a key factor for the gender pay gap in Australia and suggested that Julia’s policies have improved women’s chances of working for themselves.
Dr Lattey said that her research shows that the policies introduced by the Gillard government in 1997, including the “fairness for women” policy, helped to boost women’s incomes, particularly in lower-income families.
She said that these policies helped women to gain more independence and autonomy and were a key element in the growth of women’s participation in the workforce.
“One of the policies we have seen from the Gillards government was the Fairness for Women policy,” Dr Lafferty said.
“It was a set of policies that made it possible for women, as individuals, to participate more fully in the political process and to be more involved in the economic lives of families and communities.”
The Fairness For Women policy, in particular, had a big impact on women’s access to jobs.
It allowed women to have more say in the employment market.
“It also had a positive impact on economic growth because, as women got better at the workplace, they were able to better control the distribution of income in their workplace.”
DrLafferty added that the policy was also a key component in the achievement of gender equality in Australia’s education system, which is now more than three times as high as it was in 1970.
“As women gained access to the workplace and education, they also gained the power to shape education policy and to make decisions on which schools should be funded,” she said.
The policies that have benefitted women, Dr Lofey said, have been: the Equal Opportunity Act, which allowed for women and men to be included in the same category of employment in employment tribunals, which made it so that discrimination would be treated differently between women and the same-sex couples, and, more recently, the Equal Pay Act which was passed in 2013, which established a standard of pay for equal work.
The Fairness Act also gave women greater freedom to take up jobs in other industries where they were not as likely to be offered the same opportunities.
“So, for example, women can now apply for a job in a new business venture that’s based on a women’s perspective,” DrLofey explained.
“They can also apply for positions in a company that’s a more traditional, male-dominated company.”
Dr Gillard, the Labor Party’s first female leader, has been criticised for the policies she introduced.
She has been accused of pandering to business interests and failing to stand up for women’s rights, but Dr Laferys research suggests that the Liberal Party has not necessarily been the party that has promoted women’s equality in the workplace.
“Julia Gillard has actually been one of Australia’s most inclusive governments, as a result of the Fairnes Fairness policy, but she’s also been one that has benefited women and disadvantaged women in other ways,” Dr Rolfe said.
Dr Rofe said that the Coalition had been successful in reducing the gender wage gap, particularly for women working in women-dominated industries, such as construction.
“For example, in construction, where women are paid less than men, they’ve had an increase in their wages,” DrRofe explained.
DrRolfe also suggested that the government’s support for equal pay for women was part of the reason that the gender gap has decreased over time.
“This policy has certainly been a factor in narrowing the gender difference,” Dr Gillart said.
“However, the real reason for this is that, for the most part, we’ve been able to continue to invest in gender equality
