How does globalization impact the construction of social inequality in different parts of the world? And how could we change that and improve the lives of most vulnerable ones? This book tackles these questions by looking at the conditions of domestic workers' around the world and the campaigns that they are conducting to improve their labor rights. It considers the changing situation of domestic workers in the following countries: Spain, Italy and Germany in Europe; Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil in South America; and India, the Philippines and Taiwan in Asia. For each of the nine countries, the focus is on the time periods, included between 1950 and the present, that have seen an acceleration in the dynamics of change in the sector. These nine countries are interesting cases for comparison because of their different positions within the process of globalization, the specificities of their sociocultural contexts, and also because they have all experienced mobilizations for domestic workers' rights.
