Jyoti Macwan, Inde

WWSF Board Member; Elected General Secretary of SEWA with 12 lakhs women in 9 states, making it the single largest union of informal sector workers in India. SEWA is a trade union registered in 1972 of poor, self-employed women workers. These are women who earn a living through their own labour or small businesses. They do not obtain regular salaried employment with welfare benefits like workers in the organized sector. They are the unprotected labour force of our country. Constituting 93% of the labour force, these are workers of the unorganized sector. Their work is not counted and hence remains invisible. Jyoti is Vice President of International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC-GENEVA); is a member of the Executive Committee of International Union of Food, Agriculture, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Worker's Association (IUF) and Member of the Executive Bureau - International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC-ASIA/PACIFIC). Jyoti received the Vyavsaylakshi Mahila puraskar (Award for promoting Women's employment); the Special Leadership Award given by Gujarati Catholic Samaj.
