Their identity as “foreign domestic worker” is so overriding that their roles as women, mothers, Hong Kong residents and employees are overlooked.  

This is the thought-provoking message I received during a recent panel discussion at the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) from a foreign domestic worker, speaking about the intersectional challenges they face as working women.

As the chairperson of the EOC, I am fully aware of the stereotypes, biases, discrimination and harassment this implies.
