Australian women bore the brunt of the recession, but how are they faring economically now? In short: not great.
This week we speak to Alison Pennington, senior economist from the Centre for Future Work at the Australia Institute about how women have disproportionately lost their jobs, returned to crappier jobs and why the gender pay gap actually widened over the last year, despite what you may have heard otherwise.
