Institutionalized Servitude: The Female Domestic Servant in Lima, Peru




Margo Lane Smith


The problem of rural-urban migration and the resulting potential for culture change within the society. What is the place of the servant in the Peruvian social structures? How does the servant operate within the context of the family where she is employed? Tow hat extent are provincial-born servants acculturated to the urban scene more rapidly than their fellow-migrants who are not servants and thus are not forced into intimate daily contact with middle and upper class urban ways? To what extent is the occupation of servant an avenue of upward social and/or economic mobility? To what extent do urban servants introduce changes to their families remaining in a rural provincial setting?
