    Never heard of it? Don’t believe it? Don’t know anyone who has experienced that? Common reactions.  But you can’t ignore facts supplied by the ABS this month that confirm the gap in the full time earnings of men and women. And no you can’t blame it on overtime either.  Equal Pay Day is Sunday, 2nd September. A day that draws attention to the gap and the $250 per week difference it makes.   Marilyn Forsythe, President of BPW Australia, admits that progress on this issue is frustratingly slow.
