The work of the Publication Division of the Women’s Centre go back a long way. It has published leaflets of importance to workers on various occasions since 1982. In addition, awareness of workers was raised by printing and pasting posters in Katunayake, Biyagama, Koggala and Ekala areas in times of struggles and based on special days.
Shramika was launched as a workers newsletter in 2006. Shramika gives priority to bringing to limelight the literary and other works of workers as well as telling the world the hidden facts about workers. The Publishing Division of the Women’s Centre accords the next place of importance to the publishing of books. Women’s Centre publishes books to educate workers on pieces of legislation that are important to them in order to empower and encourage them. Current publications include:
– We Have Arrived
– Yakkoo (= Devils)
– Health Handbook for Workers
– Struggle against the EPF Loot
Two more publications are due to be launched shortly.
