Asian Women and Intimate Work

Winner associated with 2014 Selection Outstanding Academic Title Award

Asian women can be usually labelled with biased stereotypical images, which range from “subordinate housewife” to “migrant domestic maid,” and “overseas bride.” Asian ladies, in reality, are increasingly being built as “women among ladies.” These roles that are feminine associated with the many tasks that ladies perform for other people in intimate relationships both within and outside of the household. This guide comprises efforts from a distinguished number of international scientists whom examine the historic growth of “new females" and “good spouse, smart mother,” women’s roles in socialist and transitional modernity as well as the transnational migration of domestic and intercourse employees along with spouses.
