Abstract:

"We hear much nowadays about women's rights. The right to equal pay was granted in the legislation of 1972, but many people are convinced that equal pay will mean very little without equal opportunity. The Natinal Council of women of New Zealand has long been deeply interested in these quetions, and in October 1973 undertook a survey of New Zealand women to find out their views. One thousand women in 39 areas were asked thier opinions on equal pay and on various aspects of their working lives, such as their education and training, the vocational guidance they had received, their attitude towards unions and unionism, and their opinions about child care. This book incorporates the results of the survey and adds further facts and figures, comment and argument from the New Zealand scene. Comparisons from other countries, such as Great Britain, France, Australia, Canada and the U.S.A. show what is being done overseas. Other important questions are raised by the introduction of equal pay -- such as the position of the woman who does not work for pay, and the value of her services to the community. The whole book is presented in a way as to provide talking points for further discussion, and appears at a time when the implementation of the Equal Pay ACt and its possible consequences are in the news."--Back cover.
