8 March and 25 November activities play an important role in the union struggle of KESK women. The preparation processes of these events enabled the development of cooperation practices of the women within the unions and with independent women’s organizations. These events, which were (and are) organized together with local women’s platforms, were (and are) also effective in raising awareness about gender equality, women’s rights and violence against women. Since KESK was founded in 1995 a huge collection of posters, information papers and brochures produced in connection with the 8 March and 25 November activities has been created.
While participating in the general work of the unions, KESK women also organized symposiums, forums, conferences and a wide variety of other events.
