On November 14, 2012, one hundred and eighty-five domestic workers from thirty-five cities gathered at the National Museum of Women in Washington, D.C. for a formal gala in their honor. The event acknowledged the women’s advocacy work in securing the rights, dignity, and labor protections of domestic workers across the country. It was a night of pride and recognition. As part of the evening activities, fifty-three women—cooks, housekeepers, nannies, and caregivers—sat for formal portraits in their best attire.

Each woman brings to the photograph her strength, dignity, and personal style, all of which speak to the surrounding social circumstances. The portraits represent the successful collective effort of an ongoing political movement.
