Women and superannuation

Women need to be able to provide for their retirement during their working lives. Research has shown that superannuation savings are considerably lower for women than for men. Strategies to overcome this imbalance include policies which support superannuation savings for women. It also means ensuring that superannuation information is conveyed well to women during different stages of their life cycle.
