Final Evaluation of UNIFEM’s Regional Programme for HBWs in South Asia Phase II
PDF File Size: 1.36 MB | Download   
There are more than 100 million home based workers (HBWs) in the world,1 of which around 50 percent are in South Asia alone where they form a fast growing part of the workforce2. Of these workers, an estimated 80 percent are women. While this substantive section of the workforce contributes to the national and subsequently to the global economy, it lacks the ‘voice’ to make its presence felt. Actually, women home based workers are doubly discriminated against – firstly, because of their status as semi-skilled workers in an unregulated informal sector, and secondly, because of their gender. The precarious existence of the rapidly expanding and female dominated informal economy leave HBWs with little or no access to legal and/or social protective measures.
