Migrants and Their Access to The Labour Market in Tanzania: A Feminist Perspective

Article by Dotto Bakari*

Abstract

The GLOBE is witnessing an increasing feminization of migratory movements, with one estimate putting the share of women higher than it was before. According to International Organization for Migration, by the end of 2019, female migrant workers constituted 40% of all migrant workers in Tanzania. These female migrants are prone to facing a number of challenges in their quest to find work. The under lying presumption is that the Tanzania legal framework governing international labour migration contains serious gaps as regards the protection of these female migrant workers. Therefore, there is need to review of the national legal framework relevant to female migrant workers in Tanzania to ensure that it is adequate and efficient to make it safe and easier for female migrants to work in Tanzania.
