Voices from Home

The International Labour Organization Regional Office for Arab States presents:

Maid in Lebanon II: Voices from Home
A documentary by Carol Mansour

This second documentary film targets the Lebanese public to generate a debate on the role that women migrant domestic workers play in Lebanese households.

The film poses questions and suggests answers on workers' rights, employment contracts and everyday terms and conditions of work. This documentary picks up from where the first Maid in Lebanon left off, showcasing four stories of Lebanese employers and their maids.
