Australia has made good progress towards achieving gender equality in recent times. However, women still experience inequality and discrimination in many important parts of their lives. Many encounter reduced employment opportunities because of the time they give to family and caring responsibilities.

It also protects workers with family responsibilities and makes sexual harassment against the law. People who experience direct or indirect discrimination can complain to the Commission.
