As we celebrate International Women’s Day, we call upon the international community to uphold the rights and well being of women migrant workers. Women migrant workers constitute half of the total 200 million migrants of the world. Asia is home to more than fifty million migrant workers. A big number of women workers are employed as domestic workers, health care workers, factory workers and as workers in the entertainment industry. Some countries in Asia deploy more women migrant workers than men. In the Philippines, 72% of deployed migrant workers for the year 2005 were women.
