Superannuation has never been a level playing field for Australian women. As an Australian academic noted: 'Australian women are super disadvantaged.' First: Women earn less than men while doing the same job. Technically, this is illegal but the pay gap keeps widening. Women earn 17 per cent less than their male colleagues while doing the same work. Second: It is women's careers that suffer when they have children. They take time out of the workforce to care for children and are the main category of part-time workers in Australia. Third: When relationships fail — more than 30 per cent of Australian marriages fail — it is women's finances that are severely affected. Fourth: Women live longer than men by an average four to five years. Add this up, and you have far too many Australian women suffering severe hardship in retirement. This is essential reading for ALL Australian women. It explains how the super system works, and how women can make it work for them at any stage of their life.
