International Women’s Day campaigns we can all get behind to make a genuine difference
Because enough is enough.
International Women’s Day is a significant date to celebrate the achievements of women around the world, as well as highlighting what still desperately needs to be done in the on-going fight for women’s rights and equality for all women.
Today, as the momentum born out of #MeToo and #TimesUp continues to inspire us all to call out inequality, march for change and put actions where previously we would have simply liked a Facebook post, we have rounded up the boldest, bravest campaigns launching this year that could make a genuine difference. We’re in. Are you?
As part of Marie Claire’s 30th birthday year, this International Women’s Day, we launch Not My Job – a campaign to push for genuine equality in the workplace, in partnership with The Fawcett Society, the UK’s leading charity for women’s rights at work.
Marie Claire is calling on its audience to share their experiences of sexual harassment, bullying and discrimination at work using the hashtag #NotMyJob, because it’s no woman’s job to be expected to flirt with a client to secure a business deal; or to be talked over in a meeting; or to be discriminated against for taking maternity leave; or to earn less than her male colleagues for doing the same job.
Running throughout 2019, the Not My Job campaign will push for three key actions:
- To put in place legislaton to place liability on an employer for acts of harassment by a third party – including clients, contractors or customers who sexually harass, or who make derogatory comments based on gender, race, sexuality, disability, trans status or religion.
- To protect our hard-fought workplace rights and legislation in the face of Brexit.
- To push for genuine equality in the workplace for all women, from all backgrounds.
