FAO meets Self Employed Women's Association (SEWA)
SEWA is a trade union registered in 1972. It is an organisation of poor, self-employed women workers. These are women who earn a living through their own labour or small businesses. They do not obtain regular salaried employment with welfare benefits like workers in the organised sector. They are the unprotected labour force of our country. Constituting 93% of the labour force, these are workers of the unorganised sector. Of the female labour force in India, more than 94% are in the unorganised sector. However their work is not counted and hence remains invisible.
Mark Goldring, the new appointed CEO for Oxfam Great Britain will be today at FAO Headquarters in Rome to present to FAO staff the campaign Behind the Brands.
