From Economica:

Most women in Mexico perform domestic work. Some get paid as housekeepers, but many more perform hours of daily chores, childcare, and other housework without getting paid or even acknowledged. Although their contributions are usually ignored, they keep the Mexican economy going. Maria Ezcurra explores their contribution with her work "The Perfect Housewife," "Waitress," and "Domestic Mythology."
