Attitudes about gender disparities and the echo-chamber effect. Women not having equal rights with men... have things gone far enough?

Research Director at Ipsos, Jonathan Dodd joins Graeme to talk more Human Statistics.

It was International Women's Day on Thursday... bringing to light many gender pay issues.  

Ipsos interviewed 20,000 people asking their thoughts on these issues, and Mr Dodd shares NZ's compared to the rest of the World.

Equal pay is quite an issue across the world... it's illegal to pay someone less for the same work because of their gender.

Cognitive Bias - Mr Dodd talks about availability heuristic.

The more easily available something is to you, the more likely you're going to pay attention to it.

Also, Auckland University of Technology has stared to use fully batteried powered electric buses.
