Increasing participation of women in trade unions

Many workers' organizations, nationally and internationally, have adopted special programmes to increase women's participation. ILO aims to establish a workers education scheme to assist trade unions: strengthening or setting up women's programmes where needed; women's leadership training; gender analysis and training in unions or at the enterprise level; and the preparation of information and advocacy materials for use at the national level or in collective bargaining.
Increased participation by women in representative organizations and decision-making bodies is an effective way to promote equality.
