التجول في حقل ألغام السلطة - تنظيم نقابة عاملات المنازل في لبنان

"في كل لقاءٍ أجريناه مع مختلف الجاليات، أردت التأكد من أننا نشدّد على فكرة التضامن. لم نعد الآن نقول: الفيليبين وسريلانكا وأثيوبيا وبنغلادش. أصبحنا نقول نقابيات. نحن النساء العاملات. نحن لا نذكر الجاليات، بل نبرز النساء العاملات معاً. هكذا توصلنا إلى [...] نقابة. أنا أنتزع دائماً بطاقتي النقابية وأرفعها بيدي وأسأل: من لديه هذه؟ رداً على ذلك، تلوّح العضوات ببطاقاتهن. فأقول: لقد أصبحت لديكن هذه البطاقة الآن، وفي حال نظرت إحداهن إليكنّ هنا بطرقٍ مغايرة، عليكنّ القول: هيه! أنا واحدة منكن! هذا ما أبرزه دائماً.

However, if the publicising of the “issue of women in Lebanon” has prompted the production of more “gender-related” information and knowledge, it has oftentimes adopted the rhetoric of denunciation and victimisation.
