Beyond 189



There is a necessary leap between the organizational practices of domestic and care workers at the local level, in day-to-day life, and in the daily labour struggles, and the long and international perspective embodied in the demand for the ratification and proper implementation of ILO Convention 189. However, one cannot be understood without the other. In this video, the group Territorio Doméstico—a group of feminist, migrant and local women, domestic workers and allies in the Spanish state—articlate their demands regarding the Convention. They also analyse its limits and go “beyond 189”.
