DOMESTIC WORKERS—nannies, housecleaners, and caregivers for the elderly and those living with disabilities—face routine hardship and often exist on the margins of society. The Domestic Workers Oral History Project believes their experiences and struggles for justice have much to teach American society about gender, race, class, and immigration today. We seek to help bring their stories out of the shadows and into print, in their own words.
EXCERPTS will be shared here in the future as stories are edited. We hope to use this site in the meanwhile to share information about the project with workers interested in sharing their story, and occasionally offer news that relates to current domestic worker organizing.
