NO MORE Gender Pricing

OPPORTUNITIES for women jockeys in the Melbourne Cup are few and far between.

New Zealander Maree Lyndon was the first to ride in the great race, coming in second last on Argonaut Style in 1987.The first Australian female to get a shot was highly talented South Australian Clare Lindop who was unplaced on outsider Debben in 2003.

Lindop's ability was recognised by the late Bart Cummings in 2008 when he gave her the ride on Moatize. The galloper finished a creditable sixth.

Payne had her chance today when she rode the Darren Weir-trained outsider Prince Of Penzance, rated a $71 chance after finishing a close second to The United States in the recent Moonee Valley Cup and Weir said he was hoping for a top 10 finish.

I was thinking did she have Income Protection: Well, good news for us all–recent census bureau stats tells us that it’s all changing. Women are about to take over the world. No, seriously.

Nowadays, more women in their 20s and 30s have bachelor’s degrees than men (7%, to be exact), not to mention that women also have higher Income in some cases. During the recession, women also fared better in terms of layoffs. And, although the wage gap is real, it is starting to shrink—in a few parts of the country, women are starting to Out-Earn Men. In Cities young women are earning 21% more than their male peers, and in large cities, women between the ages of 22 and 30 have been making an average of 8% more than their male counterparts.

So, is it all sunshine ahead? The picture is more complicated than it appears. Check your health Care Insurance pricing.

Insurance companies say that women pay more because they’re more expensive customers who utilize more health services. While there are the obvious reasons (there is no male equivalent to the gynaecologist, and women are the only ones seeing doctors when pregnant), most plans that discriminate, according to most income protection Insurance any health effects arising from Maternity are not covered. Check with your Financial Planner about the Insurance types, polices and the actual cost of cover you need.
