Challenge

The Maquila Industry in Mexico is well know for its precarious labor conditions. Women are especially vulnerable as they also face gender discrimination in the workplace. Long hours, inadequate pay and a lack of benefits or protection impact thousands of poor women in the Laguna region in Coahuila. Today, they also have to face the closing of many maquila factories. This project aims to educate those women about their labor rights and increase their participation in the defense of those rights.

Solution

Through workshops and communication materials, women will learn about, recognize and defend their labor rights, and improve the ability to organize themselves.

Long-Term Impact

This project will directly educate 40 women about their labor rights, who will at the same time promote them among other women. This will increase their opportunities to advance better standards and fairer working practices.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
