International Women’s Day 2019

IWD is a day to celebrate achievements and look at how far women around the world have come, but it is also a day of recognising the challenges we have yet to meet – homeworking women being one of the most pressing ones.

They work long hours while receiving poverty wages. They have a higher chance of experiencing violence. They are some of the most vulnerable women and girls in the world.
