Help us to make women's work visible this International Women's Day

making work visible

This International Women's Day, Engender will be charting the work done by women across Scotland.

By work, we mean much more than the paid labour which most economists count as 'work'. We know much of the work done by women - caring, looking after households, making sure everyone is supported - is often invisible in society. We also know that without this work, the work done by others would not happen (find out more about these issues here.)

So this year we need your help both to highlight the work done by women in Scotland, and to make the case that this work needs to be recognised and valued.

Please fill out our short survey to let us know what you'll be doing on March 8th 2017 (we want to get a sense of the work done by women on any given day, so if this date is unusual for you, for example you're on holiday, please just tell us about a typical day). There are two different styles of questions, so just pick whichever suits you best.

Engender Parliamentary Briefing: International Women's Day 2017Engender Parliamentary Briefing: International Women's Day 2017 This International Women’s Day Engender is drawing attention to two overlapping areas of women’s inequality: the persistent glass ceiling that has resulted in women filling only 27% of Scotland’s 3029 positions of power across political institutions, public sector, media and cultural bodies, and corporate world; and women’s persistently high share of unpaid domestic and reproductive labour.
