Gendering Return

Gendering Return

From Middle-Class Señoras to Migrants without Domestic Help, and Back

(p.68) Chapter 2 Gendering Return
Peruvian Lives across Borders

M. Cristina Alcalde

University of Illinois Press

This chapter introduces return in the Peruvian middle-class context before moving on to more specifically examine everyday gendered and class intricacies for women throughout their migration trajectories. It focuses in particular on the role and absence of domestic servants in middle-class women’s lives, and the roles women embrace, resist, and re-negotiate both outside Peru and after returning as well as on women’s experiences of autonomy and their professional lives as these are impacted by migration trajectories

Keywords:   domestic servants, middle-class, return migration, gender, class, autonomy, home, household chores, career, children
