Ms. Yoko Sawada, Vice President of JICHIRO and Chairperson of the committee for gender equality, JICHIRO, presented the union’s ‘2014 Gender Equality Promotion Campaign’.
The following points were raised by the participants:
Ms. Sawada concluded the meeting by saying that it is very important to continue organising gender equality activities for men and women to promote equality in the labour movement and also in society as a whole. Not all women members wish to become union leaders but it is important to create opportunities for women whose personal circumstances prevent them from doing so. JICHIRO encourages women to play a more active role as union leaders, and each JICHIRO prefectural trade union leader undertakes to do all that is necessary to promote gender equality activities among their members.
