IWD2020: The Lived Experiences of Female Migrant Domestic Workers

Recent figures from the International Labour Organization (ILO) estimate that in the South-East Asia and the Pacific subregion, 11.6 million people are migrant workers – 5.2 million of whom are women. Nevertheless, the migration experience also tends to be one where migrants are faced with discrimination based on gender, nationality, and other facets of identity. This International Women's Day, we explore the experiences of female migrant domestic workers in Malaysia, and their contributions to communities in Malaysia. We also discuss how we can all contribute to positive, non-discriminatory public attitudes towards all migrant workers, and especially women migrant workers.
