Who is CAW
Committee for Asian Women (CAW) is a regional network of 46 women workers member groups in 14 Asian countries which aims to empower women workers to protect, advocate, and advance their rights.
CAW envisions a world where all people are free to develop their potential without any form of domination and exploitation based on class, gender, colour and religious belief. This is a world where the common wealth is used for the common good, workers enjoy the fruits of their labour, women prevail against patriarchy, and women workers determine their own destinies.
The mission of CAW is to support the self-empowerment of Asian women workers and the formation of their movements. CAW shall provide a platform for Asian women workers to claim their space, time and voice, to struggle against global capitalism and patriarchy, and to advance their rights. Essential to all this is the ongoing challenge of redefining work to encompass reproductive and domestic labour, and work in the informal economy, in addition to paid work.
