Do you ever worry that having children will affect your career? Or have you been called "bossy" when you tried to be assertive at work?

If the answer is no, you might be experiencing some gender privilege in the workplace, according to a new report from Diversity Council Australia (DCA).

The Men Make a Difference paper aims to get blokes on board with addressing gender equality and offers tips for how they can do so.

It also includes the following list and asks people to check off the statements that apply to them, with the more boxes ticked indicating the more gender-based privileges they are likely to have in the workplace.
