A woman’s place is in her union – for economic justice and empowerment

“#BeBoldForChange ” is the United Nations’ official theme for International Women’s Day (IWD) 2017.

In the more than twenty years since the adoption of the most far-reaching, internationally agreed, instrument on women’s rights (the 1995 Beijing Platform for Action), education unions, women leaders and Education International (EI) member organisations, including NAPTOSA, have ensured that gender equality issues remain a priority.

The statement “A woman’s place is in her union – for economic justice and empowerment” calls on women to
Be Bold For Change in 2017.  This can be achieved, throughout the course of this year, by-

•    raising women’s visibility as spokespersons in the media on all education matters;
•    driving recognition and credit for women’s contributions to education and unionism;
•    applauding social, economic, cultural and political women role-models;
•    celebrating women’s journeys and the barriers they have  overcome; and
•    showcasing women’s successes.

The development of women leadership is high on NAPTOSA’s agenda, given that 70% of NAPTOSA members are women.  This majority unfortunately does not always translate into women in leadership positions.  The theme for IWD 2017 should therefore be used as a driving force for NAPTOSA women to strive for greater participation in union matters and leadership positions.

NAPTOSA calls on its women to be bold for change in 2017 and onwards.
