Despite thirty years of sex equality legislation, too little has been achieved in eradicating sex discrimination and sexual harassment, unequal pay, pregnancy discrimination, occupational segregation and other gender inequalities.
Women and men continue to experience disadvantage in the workplace, and boys’ and girls’ experiences in childhood can be very different due in part to persistent gender stereotyping and unequal treatment of the sexes.
The Council intends to improve the situation for men, women, boys and girls by understanding its causes and making positive actions to address inequality.
