Business and Women’s Human Rights: Women Migrant Workers


This video – part two in a series of five – looks at the factors pushing women to migrate to other countries in search of employment; jobs that migrant women workers are limited to; discriminations faced before, during, and after migration; lack of protection in informal sectors; and how CEDAW General Recommendation No. 26 is relevant to address the issue.
