Speak up against gender discrimina­tion

-

THE Women’s Aid Organisati­on (WAO) recently launched the Invisible Women campaign to amplify the voices of women who have experience­d gender discrimina­tion in the workplace.

Women can share their stories — anonymousl­y, if they prefer — through the campaign microsite invisiblew­omen.com.my. “A WAO survey revealed that 40 per cent of pregnant women experience discrimina­tion at work. We now want to put stories to this statistic to show the tangible impact of gender discrimina­tion on women’s lives,” says WAO president Carol Chin.

The campaign will culminate in an art exhibition, featuring women’s stories, from March 8-18 at the White Box Theatre, Publika. Visit invisiblew­omen.com.my.
