  1. In the global labour market, every second woman is inferior. In the last year, more than 1.2 billion women were employed, although only half of them were working under humane working conditions. This reflects a survey from the International Labour Organization. “Humane working conditions” means an sufficient amount of salary, social protection, the right to a say in a matter respectively a voice at work and following the working norms. According to that, 1.2 billion employed women reflect an increase of 18 percent during the last 10 years. Simultaneously the number of unemployed women also increased from around 70 million up to around 82 million. That relates to an unemployment rate of 6.4 percent of women compared to 5.7 percent of men. The survey of the International Labour Organization (ILO) also shows that more and more women have to work in sectors with lower productivity and therefore they receive lower salaries. In average women earn approximately 16 percent less than men do. Furthermore the economical risk of women is also said to be higher, while their social protection and their rights as an employee are lower.

  2. I do not understand why the unemployment rate of women is higher than the unemployment rate of men. In times where women should be on a par with men, it is incomprehensible for me that women earn less money than men and the unemployment rate is also higher. From my point of view this has to be improved as soon as possible.
