Some heartening news

This post was originally published on Thoughts On Everything.

Usually better known for feminist rants, today I have some positive news for you on the status of women in Australia.

According to an article in Dynamic Business, womens’ status in the Australian workforce has significantly advanced since this time last year. While still not equal to men, in Australia:

The proportion of women to men in managerial positions increased to 74 women per 100 men, up from 41 women on the previous year

The number of women earning above the median income increased from 59 women per 100 men, to 92

While stunned that in 2008 the figures were *so* disgusting, I have to admit this is great progress. Big claps to Australian employers.
