The United Nations General Assembly has adopted a resolution that protects women migrant domestic workers last 18 December, prompting Malacañang to praise the move.

 

Malacañang said that the Philippine-initiated bill allowed women who are victims of violence to apply for residence permits in a way that would eliminate abusive sponsorship systems. The resolution calls for ‘all countries to grant women migrant workers in domestic service access to gender-sensitive transparent mechanisms for bringing complaints against employers.’

 

The biennial resolution was tabled by the Philippines and Indonesia, a country which is also seeing a growing number of women working in domestic service abroad. It covers contract termination, labour and economic exploitation, discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual abuse and violence.

 

The resolution garnered 53 co-sponsors globally.
