Exploring primary data collected from 1510 women domestic workers in Mumbai, this study evidently brings out domestic work as a feminine occupation in a global city like Mumbai. The occupation is an epitome of critical deficits in human development. Based on the findings, the authors argue why it is essential to create a comprehensive social security system for domestic workers in India against the backdrop of working and living conditions of labor belonging to this occupational category. The study covers themes such as work profile of the domestic workers, access to social security, health, habitat and domestic violence.
