Non-profit organisation Da Hawa Lur’s CEO Khurshid Bano is all set to launch a union for the province’s working women. The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Working Women Trade Union Federation will be launched on May 3 at Peshawar Press Club.
Speaking to The Express Tribune, Bano said the union is aimed at tackling problems faced by women in the workplace.
“The union is a first of its kind,” she said. “More often than not, working women have little authority. This trade union seeks to empower them.”
Bano has served as general secretary of the K-P Working Women Federation and plans to use Da Hawa Lur as a platform to launch this new initiative.
