Speaking with Migrant Women Health Care Aides: On Marketing and Making Sense of Caregiving in Canada
AbstractThe objective of this research was to explore the life-world of migrant women health care-aides, focusing on their on their own subjective understandings of caregiving and the market for care in Canada. Qualitative interviews ranging in length from one to three hours produced snapshots of the social and cultural fractures endemic to the migration and settlement process. I argue that women's caregiving practice is an aspect of an ethics of care that allows for moments of empowerment and resistance to an oppressive social context shaped by a matrix of race, class and gender hierarchies.
