YWCA Auckland launches new 'Demand Equal Pay' integrated campaign via DDB New Zealand

YWCA has launched its new 'Demand Equal Pay' campaign and TV spot via DDB New Zealand.

Women in New Zealand are paid 10% less, for doing the same job as men. To even out this inequality the YWCA Auckland decided men should be charged 10% more. Through TV, print, online, and experiential, this campaign highlights how absurd it is for the two genders to be treated differently when it comes to money.

YWCA1.jpgAs a result, all outrage is directed to demandequalpay.org.nz. Once opened, the website soon becomes unbalanced, just like the gender pay gap in New Zealand. And the only way to even it back up is by signing up with your support.

The campaign hopes to collect an even 10,000 signatures from men and 10,000 from women, in support of introducing the Pay Equality Bill into Parliament.

Says Monica Briggs, CEO of YWCA Auckland: "It is the belief of the YWCA Auckland that by raising public awareness around this issue and giving some education around the facts, that people will debate the issue and just as importantly, pledge their support at demandequalpay.org.nz - so that government can be YWCA2.jpgurged to adopt the Pay Equality Bill, drafted by Dr Judy McGregor, the out-going Equal Employment Opportunities Commissioner. This Bill would give transparency and openness to gender pay issues within workplaces, something which is not possible under current legislation.

"The YWCA Auckland aims to empower young women both socially and economically - this campaign fits very neatly around empowering young women to be economically independent."
