Press Conference Highlights: Global Employment Trends for Women 2008
"We've seen that over a ten year period 200 million new jobs have been created," says Dorothea Schmidt. "That's a big, big increase and that's very good news, but the problem is the type of job that was created. And we see that over half of the jobs that women have are what we call vulnerable." Dorothea Schmidt, co-author of the report "Global Employment Trends for Women 2008" and Evy Messel, Director of the ILO's Bureau for Gender Equality speak at the GET Women press conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
