The activity is part of the 9-day International event of the People's Global Action on Migration, Development and Human Rights.
The objective of the forum are as follows:
1. To provide a venue for grassroots women to relate the contexts wherein they migrate, to substantiate the data that 74% of overseas filipino workers are women.
2. To deepen discussion on the demand and supply wherein feminization of migration exists, taking into account the international gender division of labour.
3. To contribute to discussions of economic and political solutions to exploitation in migration.
Below is the program for your information.
