Linking gender and superannuation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The purpose of this article is to examine the failure of the existing legal and regulatory framework of superannuation in Australia to recognise and address sources of systemic and structural inequality for women, which are reflected in current superannuation entitlements. The article seeks to explain why anti-discrimination procedures have not been adequate to remedy these inequalities, and analyses the treatment of women's paid and unpaid work within the current framework. The article ultimately seeks to identify superannuation law and policy as a further manifestation of the prevailing formalistic concept of equality which perpetuates gender inequality.
