Everyone Benefits When Women Earn

Created 41 days ago by Veronica Del Motto

From Reema Nanavaty, Director of SEWA (Self-Employed Women’s Association) in India, comes this article which highlights how millions of Indian women work in the informal sector – often invisibly and in hazardous conditions without social protection and with limited compensation. She argues for increasing women's skills and control over marketing and value chains and highlights the importance of the ILO Convention 177 on home-based workers which no country, including India, has ratified. This is especially important in the context of South Asia, given the high numbers of home-based workers. Thank you Reema for sharing this wonderful article!
