Please join us, the Action Center for Working Women!
in the way that they want,
independently and in dignity,
and free from discrimination
All human beings naturally
deserve such a life.
The Action Center for Working Women was established for women to achieve this goal.
There have been few opportunities for women to learn how to fight against unfair treatment at work or to share their concerns or experiences with other women who also struggle in similar situations.
Even if a woman has a problem at work, she is often not listened to, because she is merely a part-timer, an irregular worker, or just … a woman. She may have more responsibilities than a full-time employee, yet it is difficult for her to get paid vacation. There are no benefits, nor even commuting subsidies. It is also hard to find allies to talk about her problems due to the high turnover at work.
Women have always been in silence even if they face harsh discrimination just because she is in a disadvantage position.
Women do not have to bear such injustice anymore.
Women do not be in silence anymore.
The Action Center for Working Women is utilizing the strength of women to build and broaden our movement.
Energetic and free. In solidarity.
Love, work, and living with dignity
Women are standing up to regain all they have been forced to give up.
Please join our network for women by women.
