Le Scandale des bonnes asiatiques

There are 50 million domestic servants in the world, most of whom are Asian. They are often cloistered in their employers’ homes, and subjected to high levels of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse. In Hong Kong, they work 17 hours a day. In Lebanon, where the master’s rule over his foreign employee is absolute, one servant commits suicide every week. In Saudi Arabia, they are constantly calling for help on social media. Who cares about them? Will these women ever be able hold their heads high?
