Launch of the Arab women trade unionists’ network in Tunis

ITUC General Secretary Sharan Burrow outlines the objectives of this new network bringing together women trade unionists from ten Arab countries (Tunis, 8 March 2011): to secure more equal standing for women within society, the labour market and trade union organisations across the region. For the ITUC, women must be fully involved in the surge for greater democracy and social justice throughout the Arab region.
