8 March in Serbia

Women’s sections of TUC ’’Nezavisnost’’ and SSS Serbia were together in the 8th of March street actions. The activities were organized to promote women participation in trade union activities and were meant to start the campaign for Decent work and Decent life for 2009.

The action reminded of the historical women’s fight and used the symbol ’’8+8+8’’ on flyers and other promotion materials. More then hundred messages were written by women in the street on a flip-chart reminding about the position of women in the society and their expectations.
During the two hours action more then two hundred questionnaires were completed on the situation of women in the informal economy. The demonstration ended with a march in the center of Belgrade demanding the authorities to pay attention to insuring decent and acceptable life conditions to the Serbian population.
