A sociological investigation into the socialisation process of the female African domestic worker in the Durban Metro region.
Domestic workers in South Africa have historically endured a great deal of inequalities, as a direct result of their role as woman within the traditional patriarchal family structure and as a result of their socialisation process. This dissertation sets out to understand the socialisation process that young girls undergo within a traditional African family that leads them to domestic employment. The aim is to conduct a sociological analysis of domestic workers. This study seeks to understand the impact of the socialisation process on the African female in society.
