Economic Empowerment of Women


The Government recognises that encouraging women to participate in the economy as consumers, entrepreneurs and employees is essential for economic growth.


Consumer protection and competition laws will deliver the greatest benefit when women as well as men are aware of their rights and feel confident to assert their rights.  


Women's experiences as consumers, entrepreneurs and employees might differ from men's experiences. The Review Team is concerned to understand whether women are treated differently from men in their economic activities.


Economic empowerment of women is discussed in the First Issues Paper, available for download here
