On International Solidarity Day, UN Women’s HeForShe global movement calls men to stand up against sexual harassment

NewstalkZB: Breakfast (Mike Hosking)

We've seen a gender gap when it comes to women in retirement savings. Women generally earn less in terms of wages. That leads to a gap in savings of course which leads to a gap in retirement. ANZ announced yesterday it will be contributing to the KiwiSavers of its employees on parental leave- that's men or women, and employers generally are being asked to help fill the gap. UN Women New Zealand president Angela McLeod is with us.

Calling on all businesses to follow ANZ

The UN Women National Committee Aotearoa New Zealand (UN Women NCANZ) is calling on all businesses in New Zealand to follow ANZ and continue to top up KiwiSaver for staff while they are on parental leave.

The bold step announced today by ANZ Bank to support women while they take time away from work to raise their family, is groundbreaking and well past time,” says Angela McLeod President of UN Women NCANZ.
