To further illustrate that women household service workers constitute the most vulnerable, an award-winning exhibit by American photojournalist Steve Mc Curry was displayed at the “Manila Conference on Migration 2015 Focus on the Most Vulnerable: Women Household Service Workers.”
At least 14 photos form Steve Mc Curry’s “No One Should Work This Way” exhibit put on show at the Diamond Hotel’s grand floor ballroom on May 13, the second day of the conference hosted by the Philippine Red Cross, in cooperation with the International federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
The exhibit features images of women household service workers who endured abuses and exploitations around the world. The women left their home countries to find better opportunities abroad.
Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than 30 years, with numerous magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name. /MP
