This glossary serves as a guide for journalists, researchers, trainers and other stakeholders who conduct trainings or write about women’s labour migration, and who write about violence against women in the context of migration. Language used in different communication materials and trainings puts forward specific positions and impressions, including at times perpetuating stereotypes. Thus, it is crucial to be clear about terms and definitions related to women migrant workers.
UN Women’s factsheet on Ending Violence against Women Migrant Workers in Asia and the Pacific captures the definition of violence against women and girls, and addresses challenges posed by violence against women migrant workers in Asia and the Pacific. The factsheet reiterates human rights and labour law framework in the prevention and ending of violence against women migrant workers, and provides guidelines for governments and decision-makers to implement the legal frameworks.
