A Win for Women Worldwide

On June 21, 2019, CARE International applauded governments, employers and workers for agreeing to a new International Labour Organization (ILO) Convention on ending violence and harassment in the world of work.

Over the last two years, CARE’s global #March4Women campaign saw over 200,000 people around the world sign petitions to call on their governments and business to join workers’ organizations and adopt international standards on this issue.

This convention means that we now have an international legal standard to specifically protect women at work from harassment and abuse. While this is a great starting point, the next step will be to put this standard into action for women everywhere, where governments ratify and domesticate the ILO Convention. Help us keep the fight going.

Read Their Stories

”When people are silent, the abuse continues. This is why I am sharing my story,” Elizabeth explained to us. Watch, read and learn from women who are bravely breaking the silence to share their experiences with the hope of ending the cycle of abuse.

we need to start respecting women and listening to their stories to end the violence and abuse.
