Melbourne-based publicist and feminist Karen Conrad has decided once again to try and fix the gender pay gap for women who need PR in Australia.
Karen is offering *SHE* RATES for females and those who identify as female – 20% off new publicity campaigns from now until January 30th for new female-driven arts, fashion, theatre and music PR campaigns.
“Women have to live in the same world that men live in and pay the same prices men do for accommodation, basic essential services, food, drink, fun – everything – while earning nearly 20% less. I don’t think that’s fair.
“For the last two years I have offered special rates to offer quality PR campaigns for women at 20% off my regular fees and it went over so well I’ve decided to do it as often as I can afford to,” says Karen.
The gender pay gap is at a record high of 18.8 per cent according to Bureau of Statistics (ABS) figures, prompting calls for the Federal Government to reverse the upward trend.
Men now earn almost $300 more per week based on the average weekly earnings for full-time workers.The latest figures represent the biggest gender pay gap since the ABS began collecting the data in 1994.
All campaigns must be booked in between today and 30 January 2017, but you can advance book any project with an end date before 30 May 2018.
