Challenges Faced by Women Campaign

Posted on December 01, 2020 by Girl Up, Zia  | Student Speak | Event Report

We started a campaign in December which was briefly about challenges faced by women in the workplace. A topic which is not talked about much but needs to be addressed. The society pressurises women to fulfil multiple roles in their lives perfectly – friend, wife, daughter-in-law, mother, professional etc. In a country like India, women face safety issues everyday, domestic violence and there is not much worth of a woman’s power and equality. A woman has to be brave and strong to jump from all the obstacles which come her way.
Other topics covered in the campaign were abortion, work-life balance, equal pay, career opportunities, harassment and child care.
