Today, the AAUP released our Annual Report on the Economic Status of the Profession, 2022–23, which examines whether economic conditions in the academy have returned to “normal” after 3 years of pandemic.
The report finds that real average faculty salaries have declined sharply for 3 consecutive years, with a cumulative decrease of 7.5% from fall 2019 to fall 2022 after adjusting for inflation.

Dr Claire Stewart presents the results of the @ANZCA Gender Equity survey and they are devastating- almost half of women have experienced bullying and over a third have had difficulty obtaining a position, compared to just 3% of men. 1/5 ImageImage
The nature of the disrespect experienced by women anaesthetists is insidious, not overt- this makes it particularly challenging to address. This is amplified by a lack of awareness/allyship by men.☹️ 2/5 ImageImage

As to when men always got custody in divorce, consider "Lagging Behind the Times: Parenthood, Custody, and Gender Bias in the Family Court" by Cynthia A. McNeely published in 1998 in Volume 25 of the Florida State University Law Review, page 891 (…).

@Scuba_On_Mars @BrassVon @JayHamiltonMAN @Oneiorosgrip @HeinerPara @musa_mylove @harmonizedgrace "Because fathers usually provided the family’s sole income through their employment away from the home [during the Industrial Revolution], this absence advanced the fathers' 'long march from the center to the periphery of domestic life.'" 25 Fla.

Es ist #Weltfrauentag.

Wer jetzt einen weiteren Post à la „bei der Bundeswehr gibt es keinen #GenderPayGap und alles ist super toll“ erwartet, sollte jetzt lieber aufhören zu lesen. 1/
Und nein, es wird auch kein Bundeswehr-bashing Thread. (Beruhig dich wieder, Mario)

Die Bundeswehr macht schon viel richtig. Mitarbeitende haben viele Möglichkeiten ihre Arbeitszeit flexibel zu gestalten. Es gibt immer mehr Möglichkeiten Trainings digital zu absolvieren. 2/
Kinderbetreuungsangebote werden stetig ausgebaut. Es gibt ein eigenes Stabselement für Vereinbarkeit Familie und Dienst.

Dennoch ist es aus meiner Sicht wichtig Missstände zu benennen, wenn man sie angehen möchte. 3/

Looking forward to what should be a timely debate on whether our failure to recruit & operationalise diverse talent is an underlying root cause of slow growth & whether more diverse workforces are more productive ones #LSEtii
First @claire_l_crawf says explains that there is a growing body of evidence to show greater diversity helps to improve productivity at all levels (eg women on boards). However, not all evidence suggests diverse workforces are automatically more productive ones #LSEtii
Looking at the upcoming research project, Crawford says it will take a much longer-reaching look at diversity in all levels of the workforce and at all stages of career progression - both before & during employment - to better understand how & when diversity matters #LSEtii

💥1/9: UK housing affordability since the year 1876 (UPDATED to 2022)

Average house~9x average earnings

Here’s a chart-thread of my research, as covered by:

@Bloomberg @Telegraph, @thisismoney, @TheSun, @guardian

Full article:…

#houseprices #property
2/9 Last time UK houses were so expensive vs earnings was the year 1876

They were even more expensive previously…

What happened to change things? More houses, smaller houses, higher incomes.
3/9 Most people didn’t really benefit though, as over 75% rented at that time. Home ownership didn’t take off until 2nd half of 20th century.

Note the reversal post-2001. Home ownership becoming less attainable

There was a time when no one was awarded child support. The historical basis of child support is in the idea that middle class and rich women were incapable of working enough to support themselves. #GenderedLaborGap.

Why can’t modern women handle the same degree of responsibility as men of old?

@callistoknows @AmazonEve @Oneiorosgrip @CSeamus5 @MyFlowe43475846 @robinhoodand @againstgrmrs @Ray_gunnz08 The #GenderedLaborGap and resulting #GenderPayGap say otherwise. Child support exists because women — unlike men — were viewed by society (including by women) to be incompetent in handling their finances and incapable of working enough to care for children by themselves.

La #crisiclimatica ha un impatto maggiore sulle #donne piuttosto che sugli uomini. Le Nazioni Unite registrano che l’80% dei migranti climatici è donna.
La percentuale di donne agricoltrici nei paesi a basso #reddito si aggira fra il 45% e l’80%.

I danni che le condizioni atmosferiche anomale stanno provocando ai raccolti mettono a rischio l’unico mezzo di sostentamento ed #emancipazione che hanno a disposizione.

In alcune popolazioni, specialmente quelle indigene dell'#Amazzonia, le donne reperiscono materie prime e combustibili.
La #deforestazione le costringe a spostamenti sempre più lunghi e pericolosi.…

This picture of Australia's #gendergap in earnings shows that progress in closing the gender gap has been plateauing since 2018

Women's average full-time weekly pay is $264 less than men's, equivalent to a 14.1% gap

This adds up to a gap of $13,723 over a year

Industries with the widest #gendergap in earnings in the Australian workforce

👩‍💻Professional services 25.3%
👩🏽‍⚕️Healthcare & Social assistance 22.2%
💵Financial services 19%
👷🏽‍♀️Construction 18.8%
🏘Real estate 17.4%
🚜Mining 16%

Leggo su La Stampa l'intervista a Tiziano Treu, presidente CNEL e ex ministro del Lavoro ai tempi dei governi Dini e Prodi I. Secondo Treu il #salariominimo si può fare i) o per legge; ii) o attraverso i contratti collettivi. Occorre precisare meglio... #thread
Salario minimo e contratti collettivi se lo si vuole possono non essere in contrasto tra di loro. Il SM è una misura che esprime una soglia di dignità per le retribuzioni nel nostro paese
La contrattazione ne risulterebbe limitata solo nel caso in cui scaturisse paghe al di sotto della soglia di dignità e quindi al di fuori del dettato costituzionale (art. 36) e del Principio n. 6 del Pilastro europeo dei diritti sociali

We need to end the narrative that breastfeeding depletes mothers. 

Breastfeeding reduces post partum haemorrhage, postnatal depression, heart attacks, strokes, dementia, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and autoimmune disease.  It's a sound investment and one most families want.
Instead we should focus attention on the midwifery crisis, overstretched GPs and health visitors, the determinants of birth trauma, gender based violence, a paternalistic medical culture, a lack of fully funded maternity leave, health and social inequality, systemic racism,
lack of flexible working, lack of high quality affordable childcare,barriers to parental leave, a gender pay gap, fuel poverty, formula poverty, food insecurity AND a society that doesn't value the caregiving that only they can give.

Today, for the first time since 2019, a Private Member’s Bill was debated in the Legislature.

The Equal Pay Reporting Act tabled by @Stephanie4BC will help eliminate the gender pay gap which sees women in BC earn 32.4% less than men annually. 1/ #bcpoli #PayEquity #GenderPayGap
This is an important issue which merits debate, and yet @Stephanie4BC had to introduce the bill 6 times before it was finally debated.

Since 1970, only 15 PMBs have been passed in BC, compared to 6 passed in the past year in the federal House of Commons. /2 #bcpoli #PMBs
Why does this matter?

Because PMBs allow MLAs from all parties to table legislation that matters to their constituents. It reflects what British Columbians want, and strengthens representation. /3 #bcpoli #PMBs #democracy

Looking forward to what should be an interesting conversation on the impact #UniversalBasicIncome could have on how we may rethink the world of work - and, in particular, the work done by 🚺 #LondonMetResearch
Dr @JessieJWL opens her presentation nothing that #UBI is still very much a "hot topic" amongst policymakers, particularly on its effectiveness on improving women's working lives #LondonMetResearch
Bustillos defines #UBI as "a regular cash income paid to all on an individual basis, without means test or work recruitment". Also notes it has been called a "citizen's wage", "existence income" or "guaranteed universal subsidy" #LondonMetResearch

♀️ It could now take 135 years for the world to achieve total gender equality, according to @wef.

This is up from 99 years in 2020, as COVID-19 and other crises set global progress back.

How did we get here? Here are 7⃣ shocking facts you need to know on #IWD22.🧵 #BreakTheBias
💼 More women lost their jobs than men during the pandemic.

⏪ The @WEF called this a "she-cession" as it reversed many gains that women had made in the workplace.

⏰ It also means closing the global gender gap will now take an extra 36 years.
💰 Women are still paid less than men for equal jobs.

🇬🇧 In the UK, women are only paid £92.10 for every £100 men earn.

🇪🇺 The pay gap is almost double that across the EU, with men earning up to 14% more than full-time female employees.

@Alexand59482200 Women have to be willing to do equal work. Statistically, most women do not do equal work. This must change if there is to be the equality of which you speak.

Let's look at the data!
@Alexand59482200 If you add up both the unpaid labor and paid labor, on average, men work more total time than women creating a #GenderedLaborGap pursuant to (as an example) the @BLS_gov's 2017 American Time Use Survey (…) and @pewresearch's data (…).
@Alexand59482200 @BLS_gov @pewresearch According to the @BLS_gov, "[o]n the days they worked, employed men worked 49 minutes more than employed women. … However, even among full-time workers (those usually working 35 hours or more per week), men worked more per day than women—8.4 hours, compared with 7.9 hours."

1/ @BMA_Consultants reject proposals for a new clinical excellence award scheme. Find out why here 👇…
2/ @BMA_Consultants were determined to address the current inequity in the scheme - something that has been shown to contribute to the #GenderPayGap and the #EthnicityPayGap.
3/ @BMA_Consultants secured some improvements:

✅LTFT consultants can get a full award
✅Choose from 3/15 areas of excellence not forced to complete 5/5 that may not fit your scope of practice
✅All consultants engage with the scheme and can achieve a Level 1 award each year

1. 🧵from Women's Budget Group re Autumn Budget 2021


2. Public expenditure on State Pensions in the UK is among the lowest in the OECD; this reflects the fact that the main state pension for current pensioners is nearly £40 per week less than the government’s own poverty threshold (the means-tested minimum guarantee Pension Credit)
3. The new Single Tier Pension is just above the single rate of Pension Credit but due to transitional rules, it will be decades before women generally receive as much state pension as men.

G'day folks. It's #EqualPayDay, which marks the additional days from the end of the last financial year that women must work to earn the same amount as men. Here are some #GenderPayGap facts. The national pay gap is currently 14.2% according to @WGEAgency 1/
No. The #GenderPayGap does not measure the gap between a man and a woman doing the same job. It is the average weekly earnings gap between women and men who work full time -- so while women working full-time are earning on average $1,575.50, men are pulling down $1,837.00. 2/
Why's that? Because the jobs that women mostly do earn less, on average -- think nursing, teaching, early childhood education. Because of bias and discrimination and bias in hiring and pay decisions, and because women do more unpaid labour at home, slowing down their careers. 3/

The @ABSStats data is in! The new #GenderPayGap is 14.20%. This means women must work 61 extra days to receive the same pay as men. #EqualPayDay #WhatsYourPayGap Image is an illustration of a man and a woman stacking large
This year’s #EqualPayDay theme is #WhatsYourPayGap. We are calling on all Australians to ask #WhatsYourPayGap in your workplace and industry. #GenderPayGap
If you are an employer, use this #EqualPayDay as an opportunity to conduct a gender pay audit and take action to close your organisation’s #GenderPayGap. Make a plan to repeat your pay gap audit regularly and encourage your management team to lead by example. #WhatsYourPayGap
