This Charter of Women Workers: An Agenda for Change for
Women in the Informal Economy focuses on the most vulnerable
of women workers. It has emerged through consultations held
with women workers across a range of occupations and spread
over many states. The document first presents a list of key issues
regarding women workers in the informal economy that need to
be dealt with. It then sets out an agenda for change that should
be included in the recently passed legislation and the bills under
consideration, namely The Code on Wages, 2019, the draft Code on
Social Security, 2019 and the draft Code on Occupational Safety,
Health and Working Conditions, 2018. Finally, this document lists
sector specific issues that need urgent resolution to protect and
promote the rights of women in the world of work, and especially
the most vulnerable women workers in the informal economy.
This document seeks to set out an agenda for change for women
workers, focusing on women dependent on the informal economy.
