They Call Us Maids: The Domestic Workers’ Story

By Leeds Animation Workshop

This short animated film tells the story of the thousands of women from disadvantaged backgrounds, in countries such as the Philippines, Indonesia, South Asia or Africa, who have to find work abroad to support their families. Employed as “maids,” and isolated in foreign households, many of these workers find themselves trapped in conditions of great hardship.

The film was made in consultation with the organisation Justice 4 Domestic Workers.
