International Women’s Day

A woman’s place is in a union

For International Women’s Day 2021, the theme was ‘Choose to Challenge’ – choose to challenge bias, stereotypes and celebrate women’s achievement.

At Bectu, there are thousands of exceptional women members, many of whom are breaking new ground on union issues and within their workplaces.

Women make up 55% of all trade union members in the UK but they are underrepresented in union leadership roles and as workplace representatives.

We know that when women come together and take action, they win, so we want everyone to be inspired by the stories of our women members, feel empowered to get active at every level of our movement and choose to challenge the male-dominated status quo in workplaces.
