FAQ: Equal Pay Campaign

Why are you targeting female MPs?


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?


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?


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.
