The ILAW Network is gearing up to release the forthcoming edition of its prestigious journal, the Global Labour Rights Reporter (GLRR). With a track record of insightful exploration into labour and employment law matters, the GLRR is set to focus its spotlight on the theme of “Forging a Feminist Labour Law” for its upcoming issue.
The gender-based division of labour that has persisted throughout history, emphasising women’s roles in unpaid work and marginalised economic activities, is a focal point of the forthcoming GLRR. The journal will delve into the global landscape of labour laws, institutions, and practices that have perpetuated this division, often catering to the needs of male workers and disregarding the concerns of women. Despite women’s increasing presence in the workforce, instances of discrimination and exclusion persist, reinforcing occupational segregation and substantial pay disparities.
This issue of the GLRR aims to shed light on the integral role of gender in the valuation and structure of work, as well as the limitations of conventional labour law models in addressing the needs of female workers. The complexities of intertwining gender with other forms of discrimination, such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, and more, will also be explored. The journal invites theoretical inquiries into the role of gender in shaping labour markets and employment relationships, along with examinations of legal milestones that contribute to a feminist approach to labour regulation. Solutions that can pave the way for a more equitable future are of particular interest.

Submissions of varying lengths are welcome, and they should be sent via email to Natalie Tate at email@example.com no later than October 15, 2023.
