Make migrant women domestic workers more visible - Spain

The Jesuit Migrant Service (SJM) is presenting in Spain the report “Making the Invisible Visible. Migrant Women and Household Employment”. The report begins with a detailed insight at the reality of women domestic and care workers and ends with the recognition of these women's struggle for decent working conditions.

The report identifies the violation of the rights of domestic workers to show the unfair situations to which they are subjected. It also highlights the effort of organization and denunciation that women make to improve their situation. Likewise, the report reviews the role of social organizations and identify good practices to protect women and accompany her struggles and demands.

The study has identified: labor informality, violation of labor rights and exploitation of domestic workers in an internal regime. Even more worrying is that a third of the women interviewed report having suffered harassment, violence or sexual abuse.

The SJM considers very important the mobilization of the different social and political actors to join positions to guarantee dignity, protection and full rights for domestic workers. We want our politicians to commit themselves to this cause to dignify domestic work and care.
