News | Statement for Women's Day

8 MarchOn 8 March 2014, International Women’s Day, La Strada international, the European network against trafficking in human beings, calls for full empowerment and integration of women in all levels of economic, social and cultural activities.

La Strada International calls upon governments and the international community to seize the opportunity to reform the traditional structures that have brought us the economic crisis and make fundamental changes in power balances between countries, between employers and employees and between men and women.

Equal rights, equal opportunities and progress for all are not only to be achieved out of solidarity but because without equality there is no prospect for sustainable global prosperity. The current crisis is the ultimate proof. Economic recovery or sustainable development needs the full empowerment and integration of women in all levels of economic, social and cultural activities.
