PUBLIC TALK: A Roadmap for Equality - The 2014 Grace Vaughan Memorial Lecture
|A Roadmap for Equality - The 2014 Grace Vaughan Memorial Lecture
A lecture by Julie McKay, Executive Director, Australian National Committee for UN Women.
Despite significant increases in public debate about gender equality and the empowerment of women, progress towards equality for women is slow, and risks stalling. While measures of women’s workforce participation and women’s educational attainment are used to demonstrate equality, there is very limited public debate on what success would look like with regards to equal opportunities for men and women.
This lecture will outline a vision for equality, focusing on key levers for accelerating progress towards gender equality and discuss the actions required of the international community and the Australian community in 2014.
