November 25 is the International Day to Eliminate Violence Against Women, and the beginning of 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.
The labour movement is a powerful force for women’s equality and positive change, at the workplace and in society.
We help make the workplace safer, challenge harassment and discrimination. We have helped open doors to women working in trades and technology and we build women’s leadership and political participation. Many challenges remain, especially for women who face additional barriers because of race, disability, Aboriginal status, age, sexuality and gender identity and expression.
