Montreal women are interested in equality and a sense of fair play everywhere in the world. There are so many kinds of discrimination in such areas as poverty, race, disability, religion, sexual orientation and so on. One wonders how we manage to survive as a species. With discrimination comes inequality, and sometimes even death.

The women’s movement has always been then champion of equality and a sense of fair play among the sexes, but it is much more than that. It is a global community of sympathizers and activists who champion causes all over the world. Causes that sometimes never see the light of day.

International Women’s Day 2011 Theme

Each year around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. Hundreds of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organisations, governments and women’s groups around the world choose different themes each year that reflect global and local gender issues.

THEME: So while many people may think there is one global theme each year, this is not always correct. It is completely up to each country and group as to what appropriate theme they select.

Below are some of the global United Nation themes used for International Women’s Day to date:

– 2011: Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women
– 2010: Equal rights, equal opportunities: Progress for all
– 2009: Women and men united to end violence against women and girls
– 2008: Investing in Women and Girls
– 2007: Ending Impunity for Violence against Women and Girls
– 2006: Women in decision-making
– 2005: Gender Equality Beyond 2005: Building a More Secure Future

Les travailleurs plus âgés qui sont mis à la porte avec une indemnité de départ sont très souvent condamnés à vivre dans une forme de pauvreté, faute de revenus adéquats pour conserver une bonne qualité de vie, affirme le professeur David Grey, de l’Université d’Ottawa.

 
 

« La situation est inquiétante et il faudra trouver une solution rapidement pour aider ces travailleurs licenciés », confie le professeur à Rue Frontenac.

 

 Il déplore en outre que les travailleurs licenciés « d’un certain âge », passé 60 ans, sont « souvent poussés à la retraite ». Il voit là un profond malaise de société.

Dans une étude qu’il vient de réaliser, au côté de Ross Finnie, sur la question – intitulée Labour Force Participation of Older Displaced Workers in Canada: Should I Stay or Should I Go? –, le professeur se penche sur l’impact socioéconomique de ces licenciements sur cette main-d’œuvre abandonnée à son sort.

THIS IS A MESSAGE TO ALL THE OUTSTANDING MEN OUT THERE TOO!!!
