As women we are not resigned to being frozen in time

March 8 is International Women´s Day. Our fight for rights, for social justice and more sustainable egalitarian societies continues - a fight that regretfully remains difficult.

We are not resigned to women being “frozen in time”. Unfortunately the gender pay gap has remained at the same level over the past 10 years. On average women are paid 18% less than their male counterparts. A new report published by the ITUC examines this, read it here.

The important role that women could play in the emerging green economy should not be ignored nor should the importance of ensuring women’s access to green jobs. Have a look at our interesting report on Women Workers and Green Jobs here.
