 Gender Inequality: Gender Pay GapThe current case study focuses on gender inequality in Australia. One of the main progress in this area is the issue of the gender pay gap. Gender pay gap refers to the difference between the wages earned by working men and women (Guest 2018, p.3). It commonly refers to the median annual salary of all women working full-time compared to a similar group of men. Moreover, other parameters, such as hourly and weekly earnings are used to estimate the gender pay gap specific to a particular group. In Australia, like many other countries around the world, men on average receive higher remunerations than women. There are several factors contributing to the gender wage gap and they include bias in pay decisions and hiring, sexual discrimination, women working in less prestigious sectors compared to men, women participating more in unpaid domestic work and caring and women spending more time out of the workforce to take care of their families which negatively impact their career opportunities and career progression.  Currently, the gender pay gap in Australia is a huge issue compared to most other developed countries.  In 2017, there was a massive gap in the weekly earnings between men and women. Men earn 33% more than women since they earn more than $1428 compared to $960 earned by their female counterparts (Guest 2018, p.3). In the public sector, the gap is lower than in the private sector, with the gap being 8.5% higher in the latter than the former (Guest 2018, p. 3).
