Abstract:

They live in some of London's most exclusive locations, cooking, cleaning and caring for the children of a rich foreign elite. But for many overseas domestic workers, the veneer of reflected glamor conceals a much darker world, one in which they are denied a passport, salary, food, and even sleep while working 20-hour days. Unable to sever ties with their employers due to U.K. visa restrictions, and fearful of deportation or arrest if they turn to the authorities, their only real source of hope lies with the small but increasingly vocal group of women who help them escape, and are now fighting to secure a change in the law.
