On International Women’s Day 360i Took Action for Those Who Couldn’t

first_imgAnna is from Texas and her boss threatened to fire her if she opted to participate in International Women’s Day strikes. Kate lives in California and couldn’t afford to cover childcare if she took the day off work. Meanwhile in Maine, Judy lives on a strict budget in an economically depressed area. She supports her household and as well as the women in the Trauma, Recovery and Empowerment group that she facilitates, she was in no position to take International Women’s Day off to strike or rally or march. The irony of last Wednesday’s activities for IWD, was that the women who would benefit most from its messaging, women like Anna, Kate and Judy, were the very ones who couldn’t afford to take action.Last Wednesday, employees across 360i’s four offices marched, striked and rallied on behalf of these and many more women. In recognizing our own position of privilege and our organization’s unwavering belief in equality, we decided to dedicate our actions, channels and voices to women like Anna, Kate and Judy. We collected their stories on our website and blog, and then amplified their names and stories on signs that read, “I’m here for ____________ because she can’t be.”In the end, these women’s voices, and so many others like their’s, were represented among the tens of thousands of people across the country who stood together on International Women’s Day. Read their stories here and see the outcome of 360i’s #EqualVoices campaign below:last_img read more

The airline, which offers flights to Paris, Frankfurt and London as well as dozens of long haul routes, says that it introduced the women-only toilets following requests from its passengers.46% of voters agreed with the move saying that all airlines should do the same. However, 51% disapproved of the idea. Over 900 people voted in the Skyscanner poll which seems to have polarised the sexes.The move by ANA has sparked controversy because many men feel that they will be getting a raw deal. With fewer toilets to choose from when flying, men may have to queue for longer on flights that offer women-only WCs.Barry Smith, Skyscanner Co-founder and Development Director said:“Women-only lavs are great for the girls, but the problem is that most planes would not be adding extra toilets, instead they would convert a uni-sex toilet into a ladies-only loo. This is bad news for the boys as it’s likely to mean more queuing.”Comments from some of the respondents illustrated the split in opinion:“We need women-only toilets because men make so much mess” said one voter.But another countered: “If they introduce women-only loos, then they should introduce men-only loos too. Women take ages.”The onboard commode conundrum joins the other great toilet debate that has been at the heart of a long running row between men and women ever since the water closet was invented: should the toilet seat be left up or down?Cheap flights carrier Ryanair caused controversy last year when it joked that it might start charging people to use its toilets.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more
