Abstract or Description

This depiction of the relation between the First World and the Global South in terms of the sexual division of labor within the household should not be understood as merely a metaphor for the power relations and uneven development engendered by neoliberal globalization. Rather, it should be taken quite literally: poor countries increasingly provide the nannies and maids who work in rich countries.
