Gender Equality Week 2022

The pursuit of equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities for all genders have been intrinsically connected to women’s empowerment.  Over the years, the gender equality movement has broadened its pursuit to address the gaps that also exist across diverse communities such as non-binary, genderqueer or X gender.

We need to improve and update labour laws and policies designed to advance equality for working women to keep up with an evolving work environment. The pandemic has made evident the fragility of past gains. Meanwhile, we must also pursue policies, practices and benefits that are not only uniquely pertinent to women, but all members of gender diverse communities.
