Summary Note This inquiry was called by the Senate to investigate gender segregation in the workplace and its impact on women's economic equality. Topics include the nature and extent of industrial and occupational gender segregation, the driving factors, the contribution to the gender pay gap and other economic consequences for women, and possible interventions, including measures to encourage women's participation in male-dominated occupations and industries, measures to improve conditions in female-dominated occupations and industries, and measures to promote pay equity. This report presents the inquiry's findings and recommendations. Gender segregation across occupations and industries is the second most significant contributor to the pay gap between men and women in Australia, after sex discrimination. By international standards, Australia has a highly gender segregated workforce, with 60% of employees working in an industry dominated by a single gender. This is due not just to individual choices and actions, but because individuals' choices are constrained by a range of structural factors and social norms - for example, caring responsibilities, the availability of flexible work, and expectations about traditional gender roles.
