Domestic work still isn’t seen as a profession just like others. This is due to the colonial legacy and slavery era. That was when the profession emerged, bringing consequences until now, such as racism, inequality and misogyny.
Domestic work has many cultural functions: house care, childcare, care for the elderly, cleaning, organizing, purchases, cooking, etc.
The exploitation of female domestic workers is a worldwide problem. Numerous factors cause this, such as the lack of opportunity, social inequality and poverty. Some rights have already been attained but aren’t enough. The path ahead is long.
