08 March 2019 08:02


In celebration of 2019 International Women’s Day, BWI will showcase a series of #Herstories by women trade union members and activists fighting against gender-based violence and campaigning for gender equality.

Today we feature Mirjana Subasa, main board member of the construction workers trade union SGH from Croatia. Mirijana has been working in the DALEDOVOD dd. company for 43 year. The company is one of the leading companies in the construction sector in Croatia; however, women workers do not benefit from this leading position. According to Mirjana’s own words, women in the DALEDOV company do not have the same career opportunities as men, even though they are capable. It is the trade union job to stop any forms of discrimination and violence against women.
