U.N. Demands End to Violence Against Migrant Women Workers

At the opening of a five-day meeting United Nations meeting in the Philippines, U.N. experts called for action to put an end to violence against migrant women workers. As increasing rates of unemployment and poverty force more women, often Asian, to seek work in foreign countries, the risk of physical and sexual abuse against the women by employers could rise, they warned. The Philippines is considered the world's largest supplier of domestic servants.
