-- On January 12, United for Human Rights Florida held their monthly Women's Rights Forum in their Center in Downtown Clearwater. The forum covered issues specifically on women in the workplace. United for Human Rights is a non-profit organization sponsored by the Church of Scientology.
"Male and female equality has been a part of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for 70 years," said Sanna Heden, Deputy Executive Director for United for Human Rights' Florida Chapter. "But even today, women are sometimes discriminated against and receive unfair treatment in the workplace. Guests at our forum discuss this topic and its solutions."
A United for Human Rights volunteer facilitated the forum and brought her more than 30 years of experience in business. She brought up that this is a violation of human right #23, Worker's Rights, from the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
One guest shared an experience of when she worked at a male prison, she did not run into any problems with the prisoners. When asked by other staff, she said that she respects the prisoners and so they respect her back. This experience led to the discussion of respect in the workplace.
The Women's Rights Forum is every second Saturday of the month, with the next one on February 9th. It is located at the United for Human Rights Center in Downtown Clearwater.
