Brief description This research will undertake a gendered analysis of how Australians can retire well, taking account of their key resources (eg work, superannuation, the aged pension, and other assets) and key demands (eg to work longer and to care for others in the context of an aging population and a more feminised workforce). The multi-method, multi-disciplinary study will investigate how people plan towards, or experience, retirement amidst diverse, gendered resources and demands, considering implications for gender equality and health. Findings will inform action in workplaces, superannuation and other relevant institutions to improve gender equality and health outcomes through Australia’s retirement system.
