Raising our Voices: Empowering Women across the Global South
On International Women's Day 2010 a new TUC booklet, Raising our Voices: Empowering women across the Global South is published. The booklet features case studies of 8 inspiring women trade unionists who are involved in some way in the international development or solidarity work that the TUC carries out. From women who are political prisoners to women leading their union in the challenging circumstances, these stories illustrate how important the international trade union movement is to working women and how much of an impact our international work has.
The TUC is committed to supporting people around the world in their struggle to achieve decent healthcare, education, employment, freedom from persecution and discrimination and the right to a say in how they are governed. These development issues are an integral and historic part of the trade union movement's commitment to global solidarity.
The TUC is proud to give voice to these inspiring women trade unionists and is proud to be working in partnership with trade unions to increase the rights of workers and to reduce poverty across the global south.
