Bro­ken work pat­terns due to hav­ing chil­dren put a strain on a woman’s fi­nan­cial health. This is ob­vi­ous when we com­pare re­tire­ment funds. Ac­cord­ing to the Gov­ern­ment’s online con­sumer fi­nance web­site moneys­mart.gov.au, men on av­er­age have about $197,054 in su­per at re­tire­ment, while women have al­most half, at $104,734. Given that women his­tor­i­cally live longer, it would make more sense if this was re­versed.
