Asian Women Workers Newsletter (AWWN) is published quarterly by Committee for Asian Women (CAW). It reports the issues, news, struggles and life experiences on Asian women workers.
If you work with women workers, and you want to share your struggles and experiences in your country, we are glad to receive your contributions and publish it in the newsletter. We are also interested in exchanging publications with labour groups, women organisations and trade unions.

To Protect Women Workers' Rights as Part-time Workers and Homeworkers
We denounce the expansion of the casualisation and flexibilisation of work pattern, not for workers interests and free choice, but for business profits. We denounce the company to retrench regular workers and replace them with casual and flexible forms of workers, including part-time workers, homeworkers, contract workers and dispatch workers, etc. Women workers are always the first target!
We call on the governments to commit themselves to protect women workers rights, particularly in the reality of casualisation and flexibilisation of women labour force that aggravate the exploitation of women workers.
