Demand Equal Pay


From today until the end of the year, women will work for free.

Because on average women in New Zealand are paid 10% less than our male counterparts.

This fact has not gone unnoticed by the United Nations, who has urged the New Zealand Government to address the gender pay gap.

So we at the YWCA are doing some urging of our own.

With your support we will help take the Pay Equality Bill drafted by Dr Judy McGregor, Equal Employment Opportunities Commissioner, to Parliament.

Please go to to register your support and forward this email to EVERYONE you know.

Look out for our tongue in cheek Television Commercial at the above website and on TV – we think you will love it !

Many thanks to all our funders, without their support we could not provide the important services we do.
