Women's Right to Work & Women's Rights at Work - Shadow Report Guidelines

This guide in PDF format is intended to assist NGOs in drafting their shadow reports on women’s rights to and at work. It refers to the CEDAW, ICESCR and ILO conventions and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

What is fresh and bold about this comprehensive guide is that it addresses specifically the rights of women working in factories and on plantations, and as domestic workers, homebased workers, rural workers and migrant workers. It also underscores the multiple forms of discrimination experienced by women in vulnerable and marginalized situations, among them women with disabilities, in violation of their rights to and at work. The guide’s approach, therefore, is to reach and protect the most vulnerable women workers by confronting the deeply embedded social, economic and cultural structures that enable inequality and discrimination.

How People Around the World View Gender Equality in Their Countries

Pew Research Center

By Jacob Poushter, Janell Fetterolf and Christine Tamir

Organizations that track gender equality across a variety of outcomes related to health, economics, politics and education – such as the United Nations Development Program and the World Economic Forum – find widespread inequality. For example, women account for less than half of the labor force globally, and few nations have ever had a female leader.

In their most recent Global Gender Gap report, the World Economic Forum projects that it will take more than a century to close the current gender gap in the countries it covers. Yet, overall trends show increasing gender equality in many countries.
