PESHAWAR: The district-level network of woman workers was launched in the provincial metropolis on Thursday to protect their legal rights and improve working condition for them.
A non-governmental organisation, Aware Girls, launched the Working Women Network. It would be expanded to provincial and national level. The vice-president of Women Chamber of Commerce, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Iqbal Banu, Deputy Director of Labour Department, Hidayatullah, representatives of NGOs, domestic, home-based and factory workers attended the launching ceremony of the network at the Archives Hall.
Executive Director of Aware Girls, Saba Ismail, in her address said the network would bring women from both formal and informal sectors together. She said it would be a leadership platform for working women, which would raise awareness about the issues of the working women among the employers, trade unions, media and the provincial trade unions. It would advocate for the rights of the working women and for the implementation of the existing mechanism, she added.
