UN Working Group Report and Microsite: Reimagining the world of work so it is equal for everyone

by | Aug 3, 2020

The UN Working Group on Discrimination against Women and Girls has released a new report on Women’s Human Rights in the Changing World of Work and a microsite to increase accessibility.

The report analyses the gender dimensions of major trends changing the world of work, including technological and demographic changes, accelerated globalization and the shift to sustainable economies, and underlines the need to focus on the structural and systemic discrimination already faced by women in all facets of their life, which places them at greater risk of further discrimination. The Working Group identifies challenges to and opportunities for women’s enjoyment of their rights to work and at work resulting from these trends, and sets out a vision for a world of work that starts with women’s human rights and transforms the current economic model through the redistribution of power and resources.

You can view the report here and microsite here.
