Large numbers of women from Asia and Latin America are working to care for the children and clean the houses of a new generation of young, upper-income professionals in North American and Europe. This unit makes the link between the negative impacts of globalization and the women’s migration. Included in this unit are prayers, a quiz on migrant domestic workers, two case studies, discussion questions, and a fact sheet on the feminization of poverty.
