Addressing the Impacts of the Covid-19 Pandemic on Women Migrant Workers (UN Women)

UN Women has published a new Guidance Note, Addressing the Impacts of the Covid-19 Pandemic on Women Migrant Workers:

“Women migrant workers around the world are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. They work in essential but low-paid and vulnerable jobs, as health and care workers, nurses, cleaners and laundry workers, placing them at high risk of exposure to coronavirus. Women migrant workers already have to grapple with multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination and inequalities, gender-specific restrictions in migration policies, insecure forms of labour, racism, and xenophobia.”
