International Working Women’s Day

Today we recognise women being discriminated against in employment, or due to their line of work, doing gendered labour, doing the same work as men and having that work valued less, being paid less, having less decision making power.

The women whose work is often stigmatised, or seen as less; the sex workers, the stay home caregivers, the women doing unpaid work in their communities.

Employment discrimination is especially common for indigenous women, neurodiverse and disabled women, women experiencing fatphobia, migrant women, and especially those who are also transgender women.

Discrimination against minority women is discrimination against women.

He waka eke noa, we all belong in this waka. Feminists leave no one behind in the fight against gender inequity.
