Migrants Report to UN 2014 - Women Migrants 

Migrant women risk being the victims of multiple discrimination, both as women and as migrants. Migrant women tend to be employed in the shadow economy and in less skilled work than men, even though some are better qualified. They are generally more dependent on their employers, which puts them at greater risk of abuse and exploitation. Some countries set a minimum age for women to migrate, or ban low-skilled women from migrating, inter alia for domestic work. While this may be done with the intention of protecting women from abuse, this practice is not only discriminatory, it often leads women to resort to irregular migration, rendering them more vulnerable to abuse, which includes precarious working conditions, low pay and exposure to violence and forced labour. The Special Rapporteur has received information concerning requirements in some countries that women must obtain consent from their husband or legal guardian to migrate, and that they must indicate who will take care of their children while they are abroad. Such requirements do not seem to be in place for men.
