An increasingly globalized labour market is rife with exploitation and violence, especially among migrant and marginalized women. The Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW) shines as a global model to push back on this violence by building the collective power of women workers. Today, their groundbreaking work unites more than 80 non-governmental organizations across Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and North America. Member organizations include migrant rights organizations, anti-trafficking organizations, self-organized groups of migrant workers, domestic workers, survivors of trafficking and sex workers, human rights and women’s rights organizations and direct service providers. With members working from the local level to the global stage, GAATW promotes and defends the human rights of all migrants, creating a wave of change around the world. It also calls for safety standards for migrant workers in the process of migration—both in the formal and informal work sectors.
