Abstract: Events to mark "equal pay day" this year were held on 4 September, 66 days after the end of the financial year, which is the number of extra days women would have to work to earn the same as men, three days more than 2009. The gender wage gap has widened over the last financial year with full time working women earning 18% less than men. This is both alarming and unacceptable and while a recent study shows that most Australians believe steps should be taken to close the pay gap between men and women, they are also pessimistic about the likelihood of this being achieved.
