Sexism is an everyday phenomenon that affects many women, especially in the workplace. “I’ve been in politics for over 20 years and unfortunately I also experienced sexism there,” said the Green politician of the Funke media group. Ultimately, sexism is an expression of unequal power structures between the sexes, said the 41-year-old. “And it is also so dangerous because sexism is a breeding ground for violence against women. If we manage to fight sexism in our society, then we will also fight violence against women and girls. “In terms of equality, society has not yet reached its goal, as is shown by the unequal pay of women and men, among other things. It is therefore important to act decisively. “First: We are further developing the Pay Transparency Act in order to close the pay gap between women and men. Secondly, we empower women by promoting their gainful employment.” Anyone who takes care of themselves, children or relatives in need of care should not be disadvantaged in working life or threatened by poverty, she said. In addition, her government supports a partnership-based distribution of family care work between women and men. “For example, we are improving parental benefits and protection against dismissal after parental leave, are pushing ahead with the expansion of all-day care and are committed to more women in management positions.”International Women’s Day is a public holiday in almost 30 countries. In 1977, the United Nations declared March 8 International Women’s Day.© dpa-infocom, dpa:220308-99-426498/2 Content provided by
