A new portal which advocates women’s rights, radnezene.org, brings lots of interesting and useful information on the position of women in the labour market, discrimination, mobbing, wrongful termination, harassment practices in the hiring process and other instances of violating labour and human rights. Our male and female activists gather and publish testimonies of women who were subjected to different types of discrimination, information on current events in the field of labour rights, legal solutions, workers’ protests and organisations, as well as research, columns, audio and video reports which depict the position of working men and women in Serbia and the region. The goal of the portal is, not only to inform the public about labour rights, but also to provide actual legal aid and information on all the required skills, measures and ways of reporting workplace discrimination in the simplest possible manner. One of the sections in the portal is devoted to good practices. Nearly 14000 visits to the Facebook post of the text “Ecuador approved the Labour Justice Law and Domestic Work recognition” testifies to the fact that good news is indeed lacking.
The radnezene.org portal is a part of the project The Empowerment Of Women In The Labour Market: A Media Campaign for Better Information, Education and a More Active Role of Women which has been realised through partnership work of the Serbian Cultural Centre Danilo Kiš from Ljubljana, S.T.R.I.K.E from Novi Sad and Peščanik from Belgrade. The Ministry of the Exterior of the Republic of Slovenia finances the project within the International Development Cooperation. Other activities are also planned: radio shows, a documentary and round tables on the subject of working women’s rights.
The first round table will be held on 28 May 2015, at 6 pm at the Open University in Subotica.
