9780822337423: Global Cinderellas: Migrant Domestics and Newly Rich Employers in Taiwan
Review:

This pathbreaking study illustrates how boundaries---of race, class, gender, and citizenship---are formed in the lives of migrant domestic workers. Pei Chia Lan's use of boundary-making as the lens through which to analyze the integration of migrant domestic workers is a very important contribution to the burgeoning field of the feminization of migration. This is a brilliant book.--Rhacel Salazar Parrenas, author of Children of Global Migration: Transnational Families and Gendered Woes " We might imagine that the more contact we have with others across the globe the closer our social bonds. But as Pei-Chia Lan so ably shows we would be sadly wrong about that. In some ways the madams of Taiwan are "close" to their maids from the Phillipines but in other ways they are very distant from them. Indeed, in some cases the closer we are, the most distant. Just how this works out is the subject of this clearly written, trenchantly argued, hugely important, must read book." Arlie Hochschild, co-editor of Global Woman, Nannies Maids and Sex Workers in the New Economy "This is a most unusual academic book. Well argued, meticulously researched and theoretically literate, it is also extremely readable and written with a profound humanity. It offers a detailed picture of the daily lives of foreign domestic workers in Taiwan, their reasons for migrating, their relationships with their employers and their struggles to make their positions endurable."--China Quarterly, March 2007 "Pei-Chia Lan's ethnographic study, Global Cinderellas, illuminates the boundaries of class, ethnicity, gender, and citizenship encountered by Filipina and Indonesian migrant domestic workers inTaiwan...Global Cinderellas is well-written. The vivid descriptions, excellent literary style, personal voice, and individual quotations in the narratives mak the reader feel almost like a witness to the ethnographic study. Students of women's studies, Asian studies, sociology, and international labor migration will find this book to be illuminating." Okiri A. Uneke, Ph.D., Winston-Salem State University

From the Publisher:

Migrant women are the primary source of paid domestic workers around the world. Since the 1980s, the newly prosperous countries of East Asia have recruited foreign household workers at a rapidly increasing rate. Many come from the Philippines and Indonesia. Pei-Chia Lan interviewed and spent time with dozens of Filipina and Indonesian domestics working in and around Taipei as well as many of their Taiwanese employers. Based on the vivid ethnographic detail she collected, Lan provides a nuanced look at how global inequalities are enacted in private households. She also sheds light on the fate of the workers, "global Cinderellas" who seek an escape from poverty at home only to find themselves treated as disposable labour abroad. Lan demonstrates how economic disparities, immigration policies, race, ethnicity, and gender intersect in the relationship between the employees and their Taiwanese employers. The employers are eager to flex their newly acquired financial muscle; many are first-generation career women as well as first-generation employers. The domestics are recruited from abroad as contract and "guest" workers; restrictive immigration policies prohibit them from seeking permanent residence or transferring from one employer to another. They take care of Taiwanese families' children, often having left their own behind. While many of the domestics, particularly the Filipinas, are well educated, they are expected to act deferentially at work. Throughout Global Cinderellas, Lan pays particular attention to how the women she studied identify themselves in relation to "others"--whether they be of different classes, nationalities, ethnicities, or education levels. In so doing, she offers a framework for thinking about how migrant workers and their employers understand themselves in the midst of dynamic trans-national labour flows.
