Caring for Equality: Opening Up Gender Pay Data
Pay gaps are in the spotlight and apparently getting worse. Where data is available, it tells us that women continue to lag behind men in what they earn — and these gaps widen along the lines of race. This is due to a combination of different forms of discrimination which in turn reinforce the structural disadvantages faced by women and girls both within the society, particularly in the labour force with low-paid or unpaid care tasks.
We aim to discuss policy solutions for closing gender pay gaps, present emerging findings from a global mapping addressing the pay gap in the public sector from low and middle income countries, and share Buenos Aires City’s government (GCBA) efforts to publish care duties data that visualises these disadvantages.
