On 16 August 2018, the Australian Government tabled its response to the Senate Economics References Committee inquiry report, 'A husband is not a retirement plan': Achieving economic security for women in retirement.
The aim of the inquiry was to identify and address the causes of gender inequality in Australian retirement incomes.
The Australian government is committed to women’s economic empowerment by ensuring workplace diversity and flexibility, flexible and affordable child care, increasing the incentives for women to work, and getting women into the jobs of the future. The government has engaged in a considered and thorough process on how we can make our tax system better, including taking a comprehensive look at superannuation.
