USAID/PROLoG Supports Conference on Women’s Labor Rights

14 December 2018 USAID/PROLoG Supports Conference on Women’s Labor Rights

On December 11, USAID/PROLoG supported the Gender Equality Council of the Parliament to organize a conference on “Women, Labor, Rights.” The Conference was held in the framework of Human Rights Week 2018. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the existing practices and challenges in women’s pre-contractual and labor relations, as well as future prospects for reform.

During the meeting a legislative package on women’s labor rights, which was developed with USAID/PROLoG support, was presented by Member of Parliament Dimitri Tskitishvili. MP Tskitishvili also talked about discriminatory approaches towards women during the pre-contractual period, sexual harassment, women’s insufficient labor rights, maternity leave, and the lack of women’s employment in high positions. Chairman of the Parliament Irakli Kobakhidze stated that gender equality and labor rights are two of the most important issues. He also spoke about how important it is to raise awareness on gender equality and improve human rights protection standards in Georgia. USAID/Georgia’s Acting Mission Director, Adam Schmidt, talked about the importance of a strong legal framework to protect human rights, including women’s labor rights.
