International Women’s Day is coming up on March 8. It is a day of celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women. The theme of 2010 is Equal rights, equal opportunities: Progress for all
We are in the midst of a great revolution in the history of women. The evidence is everywhere; the voice of women is increasingly heard in Parliament, courts and in the streets. While women in the West had to fight for over a century to get some of their basic rights, like the right to vote, the Constitution of India gave women equal rights with men from the beginning.
However, women still face job discrimination in the workplace of today.Â From fashion accessories, to social expectations, from family needs, to a professional ambition, women face different challenges everyday.Â Yet, is the work place really level?Â Are women treated equally to men?
Advancement in the workplace is oftentimes hindered by artificial barriers or glass ceilings. While progress has been made in the workplace by women, the commitment and actions that lead to this progress must be maintained and enhanced.
If you feel that you or someone you know is facing discrimination, unfair treatment, harassment, or retaliation at work, take a look at the resources we have on our websites, http://dfl.wageindicator.org/home, www.unitespro.org, http://india.is-watch.net/node/952.
Donâ€™t allow worries and questions to keep you up at night..
