Project: Promoting gender equality in Southern Africa

Promoting gender equality in Southern Africa

trade unions bargaining for gender equity

The Promoting Gender Equality in Southern Africa project supports the efforts of trade union activists in defending women’s rights in the labour movement, while strengthening their leadership in collective bargaining and social dialogue. We facilitate supportive spaces where activists share experiences and experiment with feminist education and organising methodologies.  Consequently, participating trade union activists have increased their agency and can confidently push for gender equality and equity in the trade union and workplace. The activists we engage with have taken up individual and collective actions for creating cultures of gender equality in the union and workplace. They have initiated campaigns to address gender-based violence, improve maternity protection in the workplace, ensure decent work for vulnerable workers, including workers who are LGBTI+. Our target groups are also experimenting with more innovative organising strategies.  We are attracting more young women workers to sustain and push the work forward.
