- Media-friendly glossary on migration: Women migrant workers and ending violence against women (EVAW) editionpdf - 0.7 MB
Word choices can actively contribute to shaping positive perceptions of women migrant workers and those who experience violence. It is crucial to be clear about terms and definitions related to women migrant workers and violence against women, establishing a common ground from which to work towards a world in which rights are respected for all. This glossary serves as a guide for journalists, researchers, practitioners and others who conduct trainings or write about women’s labour migration and violence against women. The glossary was compiled by the joint ILO-UN Women Safe and Fair Programme: Realizing women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the ASEAN region, which is part of the multi-year EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls.
