Abstract/Notes The feminization of poverty in Indonesia has meant that more and more women are pushed to seek employment abroad, resulting in the current situation where women comprise more than 70% of Indonesian migrant workers, Indonesian migrant workers face systematic exploitation and abuse throughout the whole process of migration and employment, as a consequence of biased policies, poorly-conceived contracts and international agreements, and failed protective, legal and restorative mechanisms. As a result, at least 20,000 Indonesian migrant workers per year return with unresolved problems, ranging from violations of labour rights to physical, psychological and sexual abuse, and the majority of them are women Indonesian women and men, including the poorest of the poor who do not have access to official documentation, should be able to fulfill their right to work and to freedom of movement without having to sacrifice their right to freedom from violence and abuse. The efforts of Indonesians, however limited at this point, to ensure this requires a steady stream of support from the international community.
