Indonesia: Briefing to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women: Women and girl domestic workers
This briefing to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women focuses on the lack of protection of women and girl domestic workers from gender-based violence and their discrimination in the field of employment, health and education in Indonesia. Many of them suffer from economic exploitation and poor working conditions as well as gender-based discrimination. Many are subjected to physical, psychological and sexual violence. Some are even killed. This situation partly results from discriminatory employment legislation and a lack of sufficient state mechanisms to prevent and punish violence against women domestic workers.
