Scoop Images: Pay Equity Leave “No Stone Unturned”

Scoop Images: Pay Equity’s “No Stone Unturned” Protest
Images by Rory MacKinnon

The lawn outside Parliament on Wednesday was immaculate as always, but that didn’t stop several dozen demonstrators poring over it in search of a way to close New Zealand’s gender pay gap.

The small crowd clad in fluoro vests held aloft styrofoam boulders and called on Minister of Women’s Affairs Pansy Wong to meet a 2009 promise to “leave no stone unturned in trying to close the pay gap”.

The demonstration also marked one year since the Government’s decision to scrap its Pay & Employment Equity Unit.
