Women, Work, Migration and Technology

March 8, 2023

8 March, 4:30 pm EST, CCUN 2nd floor, 90 minutes

Event description

At this event, we will hear directly from women migrant workers, labour rights organisers and human rights activists who address some of the more harmful effects of technological advances in the context of labour exploitation and trafficking. Our speakers will provide insight into the experience of women workers in South Asia, the Gulf and North America working in a variety of informal sectors, including domestic work and sex work.

Whilst the increased use of digital technologies has presented opportunities for women migrant workers to more easily organise across borders and campaign for better working conditions, these technologies continue to be designed and controlled by those who stand to benefit from maintaining the structural problems and inequalities embedded in the informal labour economy.
