Silenced: Talks With Working Class West Indian Women About their Lives and Struggles as Domestic Workers in Canada
'' I wish I could have my family here with me - loneliness - it makes you feel so helpless, so vulnerable, so ashamed. It's almost like a crime.''
''We're doing the dirty work. They are paying the money. But they think probably we are nobody. They must treat us equal, like we are human beings too, not like some animals.''
''My only relief is when I get a chance to go to church on Sundays, where I can cry out loud to the Lord and tell him my troubles.''
These women- the most voiceless of the ''silenced-majority'', contribute to the breaking down of silence.
