婦進家務移工組研讀活動

Motherhood Penalty

「對付母親的罰則 - 不只係厭女的母親歧視」, Cheryl Seelhoff (期刊文章)

日期︰19/5 (四)

時間︰7:30-9:30 pm
這是Cheryl Seelhoff寫的一篇文章,在2006年1月首次刊登於美國婦解期刊”off our back”(已停刊)。作者對母親在就業、法律及文化地境所承受的歧視及敵意,均有所觀察。雖然她提供了數據研究及較學術性的分析,但始終希望大家能重視返母親/家庭勞動者自己本人所提供的自述。透過討論,希望可以對社會如何排斥、怪責母親有更多檢視。

“The Motherhood Penalty – On Discrimination Against Mothers as Mothers” (Journal article)

Date︰19/5 (Thur)
Time︰7:30-9:30 pm

This is an essay by Cheryl Seelhoff that was first published in the January 1, 2006 issue of “off our back”, a (now defunct) feminist news journal.The author looks at how there is bias and hostility towards mothers (and pregnant women) in employment and in the wider legal and cultural landscape. Although she provides research data and academic analysis, she hopes that we can pay attention to the self narrative of mother / carer themselves. Hopefully through discussion, we can further examine how mother discrimination – and mother blame – impacts our lives.

有關婦進家務移工組「研讀小組」︰“One of the Family”

新婦女協進會 (下稱婦進) 一直致力爭取性別平等以及關注與婦女、性別有關的議題和制度。在香港的家務移工因為她們的種族、階級和工種而受到種種不平等的待遇處境,我們一直都有關注,遂於2015年4月成立了「家務移工工作小組」,希望通過這個小組的行動進一步推動公眾了解這群婦女的處境。

「研讀小組」(study group) 便是我們打頭陣的第一個活動。通過「研讀小組」,我們期望邀請婦進的會員、公眾進行每個月一次的定期聚會,一起閱讀相關的文本(包括書籍、電影、散文等)來討論和思考家務移工的不同景況。

接下來的這一年,「研讀小組」的主題將會是 “Foreign Domestic Workers and Family Dynamics”: 究竟家務工在別人的家庭扮演什麼角色?家務工能否真正成為家中的一分子?工人又會對僱主的家庭產生什麼變化?為了呼應及突出我們的主題,我們將「研讀小組」的名稱定為 “One of the Family”。

第一次的研讀已安排在2016年2月18日(四)的晚上,及後將會每月安排一次研讀。如有興趣參與的朋友,請填妥以下表格報名。

“AAF domestic worker subcommittee” was established in April 2015 to deepen AAF’s contribution to gender equality for all women regardless of race, class or ability, by focusing on migrant domestic work and workers.

This study group is one of our first activities. The theme of the upcoming year is “foreign domestic workers and family dynamics”. We invite all AAF members and the interested public to join in our monthly gatherings, where we will read and think about what really happens inside the home: What is the role of a domestic worker “in the family”? Can they really be “one of the family”? How does the presence of foreign domestic worker influence employers’ family dynamics?… To echo the upcoming theme, the name of our study is “One of the Family”.

Our first meeting will be on 18 Feb, 2016 (Thurs). It will be held monthly thereafter.Please fill the form as following to sign up.
