Abstract :
[en] This chapter looks at the (mis)recognition of the symbolic violence engendered by intra-ethnic women's solidarity in the context of international sexual division of labor. In particular I focus on the publications of Philippines-born women migrant's organisations. The chapter interrogates the violence of documenting the struggle against racialist and elitist marginalisation of migrant women in the context of multicultural Australia.
