Aussie Sheilas Should Stop having a Sook

There is a great deal of heat and smoke and allegations of misogyny being hurled around in Aussie politics, but they really need to take pause and stop having a sook, things aren’t as bad as they make out.

As debate rages over sexism and misogyny in Canberra and across the country, a global survey has found Australian women are the most economically empowered in the world.

The study says Australian women are the world’s most economically advanced in terms of access to education, market participation and anti-discrimination policies.

Despite Australia still failing to pay women salaries equal to men – average weekly earnings for women are 17 per cent less than men – the survey by international consulting and management firm Booz & Company found it topped a list of 128 countries in allowing women to play a role as economic agents in their social and political systems.

Australia was followed by three Scandinavian countries — Norway, Sweden and Finland. New Zealand was fifth.

At the bottom of the list were Yemen, Pakistan, Sudan and Chad.

Not much to complain about there, though I’m sure one of the Labour wimmin will find something to carp about.
