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.
