To commemorate the International Women's Day, 8 March, ILO will this year organise focus group discussions in Fiji and Vanuatu for women workers with care responsibilities.The ILO wants to hear about the issues women face in relation to their work and their care roles. Their experiences and opinions will help to form policy advice and the development of ILO programmes in the Pacific. The discussions will be organised jointly with FTUC in Fiji and the Pacific Institute of Public Policy in Vanuatu.
