The NSW Government is pleased to publish the second annual report on the status of women in NSW. The Report is an important means of ensuring the Government continues to meet its commitment to accountability and transparency and is a key political and policy touchstone.

Asking the right questions and collecting and analysing the evidence needed to answer them is at the heart of sound public policy.

The Report is also intended to raise awareness of how the lives of women and men differ. It is an annual evaluation on gender equality and gender difference in NSW.

However, it is not intended to be entirely comparative with men; indeed some of the most interesting comparisons are between groups of women.
