The Australian Bureau of Statistics has released a report which concludes that the average hourly pay of women is still 11 per cent lower than their male peers. The report shows that the gender pay gap is widest in the health sector, at 25 per cent, despite the fact that women account for nearly 80 per cent of workers in the sector. In contrast, sectors such as manufacturing, hospitality and the public service are among those with the narrowest gender pay gap.
