The 2019 Southeast Asia regional consultation of the Global South Women’s Forum on Sustainable Development was held in Kuala Lumpur in April, bringing together workers and human rights activists from twelve countries. Together, we represented various civil society organisations and networks from across Southeast Asia and South Asia, as well as women with disabilities, LBTIQ+ women, mental health service providers, and women workers including sex workers, factory workers, NGO workers, migrant workers, informal workers, freelance workers and unpaid care workers. We explored whether existing legal and human rights frameworks are equipped to provide access to justice for a feminist future of work, and discussed what is needed in order to make them more inclusive, intersectional and political.
