The care workers fight for equal pay in Sweden and Denmark
02 November 2021 @ 19:00 - 20:30
Welcome to a NLHN talk about the care workers fight for equal pay in Sweden and Denmark.
In this seminar Kristin Linderoth and Astrid Elkjær Sørensen give an introduction to the 2003 Swedish Municipal Workers’ Union strike for higher wages and to Danish equal pay movements, focusing on activism, strategies and results. After there will be a discussion about similarities and differences between the two countries and how knowledge about the struggle in a neighboring country can be used by the equal pay movement in the future. We also discuss what role research could and should play.
Kristin Linderoth has a Ph D in gender studies and Astrid Elkjær Sørensen has a Ph D in history.
Kristin Linderoth’s presentation will be in Swedish Astrid Elkjær Sørensen’s presentation and the panel will be in English. The webinar is open but requires registration through the form below:[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
