Being a woman street vendor is a dangerous job. Women working in public spaces, like ourselves, face violence and harassment from authorities, customers, criminals and even our own families.  Yet, street vending is often the best alternative available for us to support our families.  

ILO Convention 190 on Violence and Harassment in the World of Work has recognized our right to work in a safe and secure environment. But only 38 countries have ratified it so far.

Join us in raising awareness of our right to work free from violence and harassment, from market stalls to city streets!
Ratify ILO Convention 190!

Listen below to the testimonies of women street vendors around the world, in our video playlist.
