The National Federation for Australian Women (NFAW) has released a comparative analysis of the policies of the major parties relating to women in the workforce and workforce attachment to help women make a well-informed decision in the 2013 election. A copy of the Workforce attachment policies can be found here.
The review outlines the policy differentiation across a range of portfolios of the Labor, Coalition and where possible, the Australian Greens.
It compares and contrasts the different policies on the issues of:
·      Child Care
·      Baby Bonus
·      Workplace Flexibility
·      Employment Protection
·      Breastfeeding
·      Pregnancy Discrimination
·      Equal Opportunity
·      Equal Pay
·      Women in Leadership
