Perhaps we should rebrand Senator Jane Hume to Minister for Women’s Economic InSecurity
Today, I am rather vexed (again) about Senator Jane Hume. Just over a year ago she was sworn in as Australia’s very first, dedicated Minister for Women’s Economic Security. After the devastating impacts of the pandemic on women’s economic security, in particular on their ability to work and save, many warned that it could set women back a generation. The Morrison government’s decision to dedicate a new ministerial portfolio to the issue of women’s economic security seemed like progress.
