Product Description


"'Doing the Dirty Work?" makes visible the invisible lives and work of migrant domestic workers throughout the world. Challenging and demanding, the book is rooted in Bridget Anderson's direct and peronal involvement in campaigning with migrant domestic workers against oppression and for justice.' - Diana Holland, T & G National Organiser, Women, Race and Equalities, Transport and General Workers Union "'Doing the Dirty Work? "should be essential reading for all who care about human dignity, the hope of equality and the pursuit of happiness. Humane and horrifying, thoughtful and searching, it gives as complete a picture as we can hope for of the many evils and few blessings inherent in domestic labour worldwide today.' - Ruth Rendell '...should be read by anyone concerned with issues of poverty and oppression...' -" Social Development Issues" 'A challenging, eloquent, and timely work that deserves to be read' - "Contemporary Sociology"

Format: Paperback
This book mixes the facts with selected quotations from the research which make it informative and pleasurable to read. This is a style that all too often, fails to reach the right balance. Not the case on this occasion
