FAQ: Equal Pay Campaign

Why are you targeting female MPs?

A:

Gender discrimination is bigger than politics. We don’t think it matters which political party an MP belongs to - all have the personal experience of working as a woman in a male-dominated environment. They all understand that their contribution is based on their skills and abilities, not their gender. Women MPs are our elected representatives - and we hope we can rely on them to stand up for all women, everywhere.

Can male MPs take the pledge too?

A:

Yes, absolutely! And some have. All they need to do is get in touch with government.relations@equalpay.org.nz

Can you tell me more about the gender pay gap?

A:

The Pay Equity Challenge Coalition is a broad group of community, law, academic and employer organisations who monitor the gender pay gap and push for action to close it. You can check out their website here.
