Anti-Slavery International is launching its newHome Alone: End Domestic Slavery campaign to protect the rights and dignity of millions of domestic workers around the world.Home Alone, invisible to society and unprotected by labour laws, domestic workers are some of the world's most exploited and abused workers. Many are in slavery.
Despite the positive contribution domestic workers make to many households, in countries such as the UK, US, Singapore and Saudi Arabia, women from overseas are often forbidden to leave the home, beaten and even sexually abused. And in countries such as Peru, Tanzania and the Philippines, children can be forced to work up to 16 hours a day, are fed only scraps and sleep on the floor.
