The activity was an exhibition under the theme: "An exhibition of women's foils and triumphs in the Workplace" the activities were intended to create awareness on the ratification of C190 Violence and Harassment in the World of Work.

On the 6 March it started with a workshop which was graced by the UN Women Resident Coordinator Ms. Rosa Malango who was the guest of honor. She pledged to meet with the president over the ratification of C190, C189, and the Minimum wage.

I was also privileged to be one of the panelist to discuss Women's human Rights in the World of Work. I was tasked to discuss;

i) the forms of violence and harassment that women in our sectors face.

ii) How wage is connected to violence and harassment in the World of Work.

iii) What practices is the union adopting to protect women against harassment in the World of Work.
