The unlikely industry with a massive gender pay gap

According to new research published in The Conversation, female artists in Australia earned an average $15,400 in the 2014/15 financial year from their create work, compared with $22,100 for men.

That’s 30 percent less.

The gender pay gap across the general Australian population is 15.3%.

That massive gap exists in the arts despite female artists being better educated than their male counterparts, and spending more time on their creative work. Women also make up the slight majority (51%) of professional artists in Australia.
