Women in Trade Unions

In relation to my space on this website as the title relays I wish to discuss issues that are relevant to women in the world of trade unionism.

This will include a historical narrative and discussion of issues that are relevant in modern society. For example, I am extremely interested to discover why there are so few female General Secretaries? Why do women in a general sense not feature in high ranking positions and why is our representation in gender terms not proportional?

In the future this website will be interactive and viewers will have the opportunity to suggest areas of discussion and/or contribute towards this.
