UN Geneva, Human Rights Council - MMM contributed to the discussion on the report of the UN Working Group on Discrimination against women by offering 3 recommendations.
We fully agree that, as stated in the Working Group’s 2020 annual report, “Realizing women’s human rights in the changing world of work requires a fundamental transformation of the structure of work and the economy”.
We also welcome the recognition of pregnancy, maternity and family responsibilities as factors contributing towards discriminations.
During the interactive dialogue that followed the presentation of the report on 6 July, MMM made 3 additions to the excellent list of recommendations of the UN Working Group – with a particular focus on the issue of unpaid care work.
It is time that the world of work adapts to people and families, and that the economy serves the wellbeing of people and the planet – not the other way around.
The UN Working Group on Discrimination against women in Law and practice presented its 2020 annual report during the 44th session of the Human Rights council, which took place 30 June to 17 July at the UN in Geneva.
