The Workplace Gender Equality Agency puts the national pay gap for women lawyers at 25.4 per cent. Many women lawyers would have grown up without contemplating that they could be paid less because they were female. Our natural expectation of pay equity is highlighted by the disappointment and indignation of girls exposed to a pocket money pay gap as part of an ANZ Equal Future campaign in 2016. The ad features the reaction of one girl when she is rewarded with $3 while her brother is handed $5: “That should be flat out illegal”.
