1. Commuting Women Domestic Workers
Parichiti has worked with Women Domestic Workers since 2001 and we have conducted a research on commuting women domestic workers, the study was an endeavour towards understanding and documenting the status of women domestic workers in the city of Kolkata. It aimed at creating a profile of a woman domestic worker, the kind of constraints, and pressures experienced by her both within the family and outside, the ways in which she combats these deprivations and how she articulates what she considers to be her needs and rights.
The research was published by School of Women’s Studies, Jadavpur University, India and sponsored by the Rosa Luxemberg Stiftung, Germany.
