On 8 March, it was International Women’s Day! Women dockworkers of the Belgian trade union BTB held a successful gathering in the Port of Antwerp.
Transport sector is gradually opening up to women. However, many workplace cultures are still very much male-focused. The sector also needs equal access to employment with equal pay and career opportunities for women. If we want more women in transport we need to change our mindset and create equality between women and men working in the sector.
What is good for women transport workers is good for all transport workers!
