New online database on gender equality

Students, researchers and the public will now be able to find up-to-date statistics on topics such as the gender pay gap, maternal health and higher education completions for women thanks to a new online database.

Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said the new dashboard brings together publically available data in one place for the first time, transforming the way people can access and use it.

“Knowledge and information are powerful tools and this dashboard will allow everyone to see where we are doing well – for example, it shows us that since 2010 more women than men have completed undergraduate and postgraduate degrees,” Mrs Taylor said.

“It also shows us where women are experiencing unacceptable difficulties and danger – such as in the areas of domestic and sexual assault.

“This tool will not just inspire conversations about issues affecting women, it will help the government and non-government sectors work together on effective solutions.

“It will also allow students and researchers to create their own insights and projects by enabling them to easily filter information, generate interactive graphs and download slides and photos.”
