Women and Money Survey

Are you woman? This research project wants to hear you roar or more precisely, how you manage your finances.

Over the last 30 years, there have been major changes in the number of women who are in paid work, and in the ways single and partnered women deal with money.

Professors Roslyn Russell (RMIT University) and Amalia Di lorio (La Trobe University) are leading an investigation into Australian women’s experiences with managing money.

The research aims to explore questions such as:

• How are household budgets being organised today?

• Who is taking responsibility for paying the bills and other regular expenses?

• How are ‘big’ financial decisions made?

• Do Australian women know how much superannuation they will have when they retire?

The project is looking for women to participate in a 15 minute public survey. Open to all women. Tell your friends, your family and even the woman next door!
