By The Star Staff

The Office of the Women’s Advocate (OMP by its Spanish initials) and the Puerto Rico Institute of Statistics reiterated their call to all working women in Puerto Rico to complete the Working Women’s Needs survey, which is available at the link: needs-woman.

The purpose of the electronic questionnaire, aimed at all working women in the public and private sector, housewives, caregivers, entrepreneurs, and those who are self-employed, is to better identify the needs and challenges of working women and, based on empirical evidence, promote possible solutions in the short, medium and long term.

“The deadline to fill out the questionnaire is June 16, 2023. There is still time to participate in this valuable tool. The survey is of the utmost importance because it will enable us to more accurately fulfill the mission of our office,” said interim Women’s Advocate Madeline Bermúdez. “We seek to ensure the full development of women, promote equality and equity, eradicate all manifestations of discrimination and violence, promote and enforce public policies that guarantee their human rights and educate the community to make proactive and affirmative decisions in defense of women’s rights.”

“At the Puerto Rico Institute of Statistics we are compiling the responses to this survey, to then perform the analysis and generation of statistics for the subsequent presentation of the results,” added Orville Disdier Flores, the executive director of the institute.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and anonymous. The topics included are: current employment situation, work environment, breastfeeding, maternity, structure and needs of the house and home, quality of life, physical health and emotional health.
