Listen: CARE Launches #ThisIsNotWorking on International Women's Day


CARE Action is celebrating March and International Women’s Day with a brand new podcast episode and CARE’s new campaign: #ThisIsNotWorking.  

March is a significant month for CARE and the global humanitarian community because Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, March 8, are celebrated around the world to honor women’s social, economic, cultural and political achievements. Every year CARE and CARE Action take advantage of the occasion to talk about gender issues that contribute to and stand in the way of women’s achievements. This year, March and International Women’s Day have special significance because recent campaigns like #MeToo and #TimesUp have placed women, gender-based violence and workplace inequities squarely in the spotlight.

CARE has promoted women’s equality, safety and inclusion in the workplace for decades because we know it’s the only sustainable path for achieving justice, reducing poverty and creating a world where everyone can live in peace. CARE works with factory workers, domestic workers, market workers, street sellers and millions of people who fall into the informal employment sector. We’re encouraged that #MeToo and #TimesUp have magnified problems that are pervasive all over the world and broken down some of the secrecy and silence that surrounds sexual abuse and workplace harassment. We’re grateful these campaigns have provided women opportunities to share their stories and seek accountability and that’s something CARE wholeheartedly supports. We’re also excited to add our own voices to the critical conversations the world is having.

On this week’s episode of the CARE Action podcast, Ellen Carmichael, CARE’s Director of Citizen Advocacy and Milkah Kihunah, CARE’s Deputy Director of Global Advocacy team up with host Jeanne Faulkner to talk about the impact these campaigns have made globally and how CARE is addressing workplace harassment and violence in every employment sector with a new global campaign, #ThisIsNotWorking.

Download the episode, share it with friends, and find out how you can celebrate March with CARE Action and help make women, workplaces and the world safer for everyone.
