Maids & Madams: Domestic Workers Under Apartheid

Maids & Madams: Domestic Workers Under Apartheid

Price incl. VAT, excl delivery

At the very heart of apartheid lies a unique relationship, all the more powerful because it belongs in the home. It is the relationship between white employer and black servant - who not only cooks and cleans but also brings up white babies, while her own are left in the township for twelve or twenty-four hours a day.

In a series of revealing interviews Jacklyn Cock exposes the truth about the triple oppression of South African domestic workers: of colour, class and sex.
