EN Can an employment system hide a reality of torture and humiliation? Maid in Hell is a documentary about the 2.8 million migrant women who work as maids in the Middle East. They are bound to their employers under a system known as Kafala, they are often trapped and abused.

Domestic workers comprise a significant part of the global workforce in informal employment and are among the most vulnerable groups of workers. They work for private households, often without clear terms of employment, unregistered in any book, and excluded from the scope of labour legislation. According to the International Labour Organization, there are at least 67 million domestic workers worldwide. Even though a substantial number of men work in the sector it remains a highly feminized sector: 80 per cent of all domestic workers are women. Many of them are migrant women.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on the theme of domestic work in Europe and in Luxembourg.

Expressions of Humanity: Maid in Luxembourg
Maid in Hell

Expressions of Humanity

The power of arts and human stories to raise awareness and achieve social change: it is the red thread of the new cycle of events proposed by Time For Equality. It will focus on important human rights questions of our time, such as migration, increasing inequalities, trafficking and new forms of slavery, violence against women and children - and on the response of our society.

Each event will consist of a film screening, a theatre piece or a book presentation to set the context. It will include testimonials of inspirational speakers and a discussion with the audience.

True to the motto of Time For Equality "Learn, Share, Act", our initiatives not only sensitise the public but also motivate them to answer the question "What can I do?" by proposing a project, a campaign, an action through which each one of us can be part of the solution to build a fairer and better world; a world in which we would like to live.
