9781783521081: No Lipstick in Lebanon

Meron Lemma couldn't know there was a fate worse than wasting away as a poor teenager in the Ethiopian slum where she was born. Desperate to create her own destiny, and drawn by the irresistible possibility of earning real dollars as a maid in Beirut, Meron leaves her devout mother and family behind to join the many other Habesha migrants searching for a better life in the Middle East. Only once there does she realize the ugly truth: instead of opportunity, she has found captivity. Trapped and mistreated by the harsh Madame, Meron lives in constant fear for her spirit and even her life. Rich in cultural detail and exposing the ongoing, under-reported horrors facing domestic workers in Lebanon today, this is a harrowing account of the unremitting hell of modern slavery. This is not just a fictionalized report of one maid's ordeal, but rather the uncovering of a larger issue plaguing a generation of women.
