Protest of migrant women and domestic workers rights in Spain. 2016

Spain passed its first law on PDW in 1985, although the first forms of protection for PDWs date back to 1959 (Montepìo Nacional del Servicio Domestico). The question of migration is particularly relevant to PDW in Spain. Most of the people employed in the sector are Latin American migrants, also including migrants from Ecuador. Being Ecuador another country case in this project, this opens the possibility of a specific transnational Spain-Ecuador analysis. In relation to social mobilisation, various groups are campaigning for the ratification of C189. For intra-regional analysis, Spain and Italy show interesting comparable patterns.
