Organising Domestic Workers in Kerala

Towards Recognition through Professionalisation

While discussing the existing scenario of domestic workers in Kerala, this paper explains the processes involved in building "recognition" for domestic workers through the professionalisation of their work. The process is explained through the history of the organisation of Self Employed Women's Association-Kerala and locating within it the personal experiences of workers and service takers. The institutional setting of SEWA was fundamental in creating spaces for negotiation in terms of work regularity, decent wages, safe work conditions and social security.
