It was only in 1977, when March 8 was proclaimed as the International Women's Day.

"See, we're not about setting Australians against each other, trying to push some down to lift others up", he said.

"That is an absolutely liberal value, that you don't push some people down to lift some people up". And that is true about gender equality too.

Morrison said O'Dwyer's message was that "gender equality isn't about pitting girls against boys".

Achieving a gender-equal world requires social innovations that work for both women and men and leave no one behind.

Morrison said he and his wife Jenny wanted their two daughters to "have all the choices in life that you would hope that they would have". And ultimately, it needs innovations that disrupt business as usual, paying attention to how and by whom technology is used and accessed, and ensuring that women and girls play a decisive role in emerging industries.

"You look around the world, where women face their biggest challenges and struggles - they're in the developing countries of the world".

The Coalition government has been criticised for its low numbers of women in Parliament.

But Mr Morrison has denied his party has a "women problem" pointing to the appointment of a record seventh woman to Cabinet on the weekend and the preselection of 19 women since August.
