unitednations“Migration can be an empowering process if the human and labour rights of migrants are protected. Safe, orderly and regular migration can allow women and men to develop new skills, earn higher wages than in their countries of origin, flourish as entrepreneurs, and contribute importantly to the growth of their home economies when they remit their earnings back.
Similarly, migration can increase their access to education and economic opportunities, disrupt harmful gender norms and expectations, and improve their social and political status.” @unwomen Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka is at the #UnitedNations General Assembly in #NYC advocating for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls everywhere. Yesterday at the #UNGA leaders adopted the New York Declaration on refugees and migrants.
Women and girls comprise 48% of all international migrants. There are some 118 million migrant women worldwide, contributing in total around $2.3 trillion to global productivity. Many have moved on their own to take up work. The opportunities open to them are primarily in low-skilled jobs and unregulated sectors, like agriculture, domestic work, services and the sex industry. 📷: Portrait in the @Instagram studio by @robertclarkphoto. #Cinemagraph by @flixelphotos
