SRSG on violence against children: Annual report 2011, para. 40
Another area of common concern is the development of new ILO standards to ensure decent work for domestic workers. The Special Representative continues to support this process, which opens avenues for strengthening children's protection from exploitation in domestic service and from any form of violence associated with it. Child domestic workers, especially girls, are highly vulnerable to violence. Working in private households, often far from their own homes and with little or no protection or social support, they are exposed to excessive working hours, hazardous tasks, social stigma and discrimination, physical and emotional violence, as well as sexual abuse.
