Here’s some news you already know: Australian women are underpaid. The gender pay gap is now 14.6 per cent in Australia, a figure that’s barely shifted in the past two decades.
What are we doing about it? While we’ve campaigned for 15 years to close the pay gap in Australia (and will continue to do so), this year we thought we’d offer you a little sweetener for Equal Pay Day on August 31.
As part of our ongoing campaign to close the gender pay gap, marie claire is bringing together 30 of your favourite brands to offer a discount equal to the pay gap percentage for the duration of Equal Pay Day. Find out all the details and discount codes here.
You’ll receive 15 per cent off brands including Cue, Veronika Maine, Dion Lee, The Iconic, Trenery, Alice McCall, Ginger & Smart, Manning Cartell, Parlour X, Peter Alexander, One Teaspoon, Jac + Jack, Spell & The Gypsy Collective, Napoleon Perdis, Benefit, The Daily Edited, SENSO, Fashion BNKR, Stylerunner, Hard To Find, First Base, Glamazon, Wittner, My Chameleon, SAND & SKY, Thomas Sabo and Bellabox.
August 31 has been chosen as 2018’s Equal Pay Day because Australian women would need to extend the financial year to this date to earn the same annual salary as men.
It’s a depressing statistic, which is why, at the very least, we’ve all earned a spot of retail therapy. Find the exact offers from each brand and the discount code you’ll need to redeem on your purchases here.
