Child Domestic Work and Transitions to Commercial Sexual Exploitation: Evidence from Ethiopia
Child domestic work is one of the most common forms of child labor globally and is considered a form of modern-day slavery (UNICEF 1999; Black 2002). There are an estimated 17.2 million child domestic workers in the world, and the vast majority are girls (ILO 2012). Domestic work keeps children out of school, confined to the home, socially isolated, and burdened with excessive domestic duties (Black 2002). Their time and movements are strictly controlled by their employers. Younger domestic workers are often preferred by employers as they are easier to control and manipulate, and they demand little or no pay (HRW 2006).
