In an effort to show support and encourage more mothers to re-join the workforce, Monster.com is excited to announce the launch of #SheMakesItWork campaign to raise greater awareness on the issues women across Southeast Asia face at work. The campaign is backed by a Monster study, which surveyed over 2600 respondents in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines. The study throws light on the challenges women and working mothers face in the workplace today.
In the Philippines, more than 50% of mothers surveyed said they believe their career has been hindered or “somewhat” affected by their decision to have children. Perhaps contributing to this are levels of discrimination in the workplace, where 20% of women said they have been labeled as “too emotional”, and 19% don’t feel like they are taken seriously in the workplace.
