Women of color continue to be disproportionately represented in low-wage work. Consequently, they are less likely to have access to paid sick time, family leave, vacation, retirement savings, and other components of the human right to decent work. The panel will feature human rights advocates, economists, and organizers offering concrete human rights-based solutions for advancing economic justice for women, and in particular, women of color in the United States.
