Chair: Marian Baird

As elsewhere, Asia's trade unions have traditionally been a male-dominated preserve even in industries where the majority of workers are women. Many union activists, men and women, are quick to point to women's family responsibilities and other socio-cultural factors when explaining why women are not better represented in leadership positions. While these factors are influential, factors internal to the union movement also contribute to the imbalance. This practitioner panel brings together female trade unionists from different Asian contexts to discuss their personal experience of the challenges of being active in the union movement, the opportunities engagement has brought, and their thoughts on the future shape of unions in their respective countries.
