  • International Women's Day: NEU demands action on teaching gender pay gap

While many people and organizations recognize and celebrated International Women's Day Thursday, there are women in Williams Lake who quietly but consistently volunteer to make a positive difference in the lives of girls in Williams Lake every day.

The theme as proclaimed by UN Women is "Time is Now: Rural and urban activists transforming women's lives".

Mrs Harrison made the call in an address at a symposium in Accra on Wednesday, which was organised by the he National Coordinating Council, Ghana, in collaboration with the Public Services International (PSI), as a prelude to the commemoration of the 2018 International Women's Day.

The French government has announced it will implement new measures to combat gender pay gaps in the workplace. "We have girl power".

Aside from walkouts and strikes, many women and celebrities have taken to social media to thank the women who shaped them and to celebrate their femininity. This reflects the fact that women do not, on average, progress as far as men through the ranks of an organisations.


"We are four times more likely to tell a young girl to be careful then we are to tell a young boy".

A DfE spokesperson said: "We want to see more great teachers, both male and female, enter the profession and make sure that excellent female teachers get the right support and opportunities to progress into school leadership".

"Malaysian women have waited for 12 years - and we will wait no longer". In 2013, LVMH signed the United Nations Women's Empowerment Principles, making this the company's second worldwide commitment. We have to fight for the recognition we deserve and work hard to fend for our families. Because in her comments on a case of domestic violence in the HDZ party Minister Murganic says, 'That's how things are in a marriage.' We are angry because conservative and church circles are making up gender ideology in order to preserve patriarchy. "And this is the opportunity for us to come together, not only to celebrate women and girls, but to take a really hard look at those issues, and why we haven't achieved gender equity yet".

While Ivanka, author of Women Who Work, has insisted that she is behind gender equality and ending the mistreatment of women at work, her credibility took a blow past year when she was seen to be blocking Obama's gender pay gap policy - you know, the system working towards equal pay.

The Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MCIS) of 2014 reports that 32 percent of women in Zimbabwe aged between 20 and 49 years were married off before the age of 18.
