Solidarity & Care

Domestic Worker Activism in New York City

«Solidarity & Care exemplifies the best of feminist research and scholarship. Emerging out of her long tenure volunteering with the worker-organizers of New York’s Domestic Workers United, Glaser’s organizational history centers the narratives of women workers around the unsustainable structure of the industry that motivated their legal campaigns and ultimately resulted in the passage of the Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights. Their frank insights enliven the work of organizing by compelling readers to not only listen to, but also stand with them.”Julietta Hua, Professor of Women and Gender Studies at San Francisco State University, and author of Trafficking Women’s Human Right

«"One group doing such 'prefigurative' work is Domestic Workers United (DWU) in New York, as Alana Lee Glaser emphasizes in Solidarity & Care. Glaser—who does an exemplary job defining her terms throughout the book and thus offers a remarkably accessible study—uses an ethnographic method to show how the DWU established the Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights in New York State. Because she spent multiple years with the DWU, she is able to tell the longer story of a policy victory: how it relied on an 'emotional community' where workers shared stories and taught one another how to advocate for better treatment, starting with knowing their rights as employees."Public Books»

«Solidarity & Care gives texture to the complexities of activism among domestic workers in New York. Alana Lee Glaser has elaborated on what we know about Domestic Workers United by giving voice to domestic workers of various cultures and showing readers not only how the Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights was established, but how the fight for equal rights continued after it was passed. This vivid ethnography presents the desperate need for solidarity between community members, workers, and employers for better working conditions and a sense of communal citizenship."Tamara Mose, Professor of Sociology and author of Raising Brooklyn: Nannies, Childcare, and Caribbeans Creating Community»

«"Anthropology professor Alana Lee Glaser has written this exemplary ethnography of the Domestic Workers United (DWU) organization and their tremendous efforts to help pass the 2010 New York State Domestic Worker Bill of Rights, the first labor law in the United States protecting in-home workers. All royalties go directly to the Domestic Workers United."Ms.»
