Maternity for export

Maternity for export 

The International Labour Organization ILO published on May the 13th 2014 its Global Report on Maternity and Paternity at Work, an issue closely related to gender discrimination, inequality and,  high maternal and children mortality rates worldwide whose reduction is one of the U.N Millennium Development Goals, and although the ILO report recognizes that certain improvements have been made by Governments and Legislators from many countries, there is still a scandalous wide number of workers excluded from the scope of many Labor Codes or Social Security norms and therefore from Maternity and Paternity protection at work.


The ILO Report underlines not only the absence in many countries of Labour norms that protect female workers during pregnancy and after childbirth, but it also emphasizes that many categories of workers that are in their majority women, have been excluded from the scope of the Labour Codes, it is the case of Africa and Asia.
