- Resource Title: Home-based Workers Raise Their Voices
Impact: Home-based workers, the majority of whom are women, constitute an invisible workforce that numbers in the millions globally, but which has very little protection, representation or access to social security available to other workers in the economy. HomeNet has built networks across South Asia and Southeast Asia to begin bringing the realities of homebased workers into the public eye.
Through a series of events in 2011, HomeNet South Asia was successful in raising the profile of home-based workers in the national press in Pakistan, and building the confidence of workers to speak out about their situation.
