A/HRC/44/51: Women’s human rights in the changing world of work - Report of the Working Group on discrimination against women and girls
16 April 2020
In the present report, the Working Group on discrimination against women and girls analyses the gender dimensions of major trends changing the world of work, including technological and demographic changes, accelerated globalization and the shift to sustainable economies, and underlines the need to focus on the structural and systemic discrimination already faced by women in all facets of their life, which places them at greater risk of further discrimination. The Working Group identifies challenges to and opportunities for women’s enjoyment of their rights to work and at work resulting from these trends, and sets out a vision for a world of work that starts with women’s human rights and transforms the current economic model through the redistribution of power and resources.
