Migrant domestic workers in action: Leaflet

Around the world, at least 52 million people - over 80% of whom are women - earn their living as domestic workers. They clean, cook, look after children and take care of the elderly, among other tasks. Domestic workers provide much needed skills and make invaluable contributions to the families and homes they care for, and to society at large. Yet their contribution is often not valued, and they remain largely unprotected and subject to abuse.
