  4. Fact sheet on Domestic workers in Asia and the Pacific

    01 November 2011

    Work in households and homes is as old as time, vital for the well-being of families, communities and societies at large. Traditionally done by women and girls without pay, domestic work is often not perceived as “real employment”.

This genderbiased argument has resulted in the effective, systematic, marginalization and undervaluation of domestic work.
