International Women's Day

By satomi on January 31, 2017

International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8th celebrates women’s achievements and gender equality across the world.

 

The potential for change lies in the hands of millions of women across the world. IWD is more important than ever as many gains are now under threat. Inequality is everyone's problem to fix - because it's the only way to unlock the potential of women and girls.

 

Many women still suffer from gender inequality in the workplace. Far too often, working mothers are disproportionately affected if they get pregnant, which can lead to stalled career opportunities and lower pay. If you can speak with an Expert about these issues, then you’re in a better position to set yourself up for success and counter discrimination.

 

If you are being unfairly treated in the workplace, or concerned about equal rights in law, Legal Experts on JustAnswer can help. Whether you want clarity on what defines discrimination, or want to make sure the people you manage are being treated fairly, JustAnswer can answer your questions.

 

As well as “structural” barriers such as the gender wage gap, women also face “soft” barriers such as differential gender roles in the home. Many working women still handle more the domestic work, like washing, cooking and cleaning - even if they work full-time - than men.

 

Are you struggling to cope with a job AND housework? Relationship Experts can guide you through the process of engaging with your partner and ensure you have a fairer relationship at home.


Whatever your question and personal issues you face, there’s an Expert on JustAnswer there for you whenever you need it.
