Yet another suicide attempt by an Ethiopian woman domestic worker in Tripoli


Despite the recurrence of suicide incidents among migrant women domestic workers (MWDW), local newspapers still take little notice of the news without questioning the causes behind such actions. In this respect, L’Orient Le Jour daily, in its issue of Saturday, briefly reported an attempt by an Ethiopian MWDW to throw herself from her employer’s balcony in Tripoli, North Lebanon. OLJ just noted in her security review section that the concerned woman was slightly injured and that she was being treated in hospital. (L’Orient Le Jour, March 19, 2016)
