In this special edition, a look at the working women the world tends to forget. The domestic female worker employed by private households and who often operates without clear terms of employment and also in a vulnerable position. At least 80 percent of the 67 million domestic workers worldwide are female. Our reporters in Ecuador and Lebanon report on initiatives to ensure their rights.
