An anonymous group of unionist women subscribed in 1978 a manifesto asking for an active participation of working women in unions. It gives information about the acquired rights and denounces the lack of implementation of laws by the employers. In this document, they came forward with the idea of creating women’s commitees in the unions as well as celebrating the 8th of March, through meetings in the unions with approval of motions that would attract people’s attention to the situations lived by working women.
