Ending gender-based discrimination and violence is a global priority that requires collective action. On July 6, 2020, the UN Working Group on Discrimination Against Women and Girls presented their new thematic report on Women’s Human Rights in the Changing World of Work at the 44th session of the UN Human Rights Council and called on governments to ratify ILO C190 and C189. The report was launched via webinar on July 22, 2020. It examines the effects of four key trends in the world of work – technological change, demographic change, accelerated globalization, and environmental degradation accompanied by the shift towards sustainable jobs – on women’s human rights. It predicts that “women in the most vulnerable forms of informal work will be the most harshly affected” by some of the negative outcomes of these trends in the absence of a gendered analysis. A website has been specially created for the report to make it more accessible and enhance its use as an advocacy tool.
