This month at NEXT magazine we're launching a campaign that is hugely significant for all working women in New Zealand - the Close the Pay Gap campaign.
Studies have found that when men and women contributed the same value to their firms, women were paid less than men, on average. Even more disheartening is the fact that the older we get, the wider the gap grows.
You can show your support for the Close the Pay Gap campaign by wearing the exclusive camellia pin that comes free with the June issue of NEXT.
The pin, which comes in either gold or silver, features geometric 'leaves' surrounding a traditional camellia – a symbol of the suffragette movement. We want readers to wear this pin as a reminder to themselves and others that pay equality is important, and Kiwi women will continue to fight for it.
In 2017, the World Economic Forum reported that it would take 217 years to close the workplace gender pay gap. Help us get this message out and make the working world an equal place for our children, and our grandchildren.
Let's open the conversation and show our future generations that your worth isn't defined by your gender. Who are you going to talk to today about closing the gap?
In a button hole.
On a hat.
On your hip or pinned to a pocket.
On your lapel.
On your collar.
