BPW Southland secretary Sue Morrison-Bailey and UNIFEM Southland Coordinator Jenny Campbell show off the red bags they were selling to raise awareness of the International Equal Pay Day. Ms Morrison-Bailey said women were being paid less than men for doing the same work all around the world and that had to change. In New Zealand a woman with the same qualifications as a man and in the same job would, on average, be earning 14 per cent less than him after five years, she said. It had been known for years that women earned less than men, but the gap was not being bridged and awareness needed to be raised to stop this from continuing, Ms Morrieson-Bailey said. This is the first time groups in Southland have taken part in the day.
