Gender inequality persists in every country and shapes opportunities and outcomes for women, men and people of all gender identities. Gender is a crucial factor in shaping the economies, governance and stability of nations around the world (Ban Ki-Moon, 2014), and as such is critical to Australia’s national interests. Further, considering how gender intersects with other factors such as age, disability, rural/urban location and socio-cultural background is essential to understanding the broader factors shaping economic, social and political development.
