"Jennifer Fish’s work captures the nuances of two decades of research on paid domestic labor and places the South African experience in the global context…. This study makes an important contribution to research on caregiving, intersectionality, inequality, and social change. It is an excellent choice for graduate and upper-division undergraduate courses."

Mary Romero, Gender & Society
