Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2006
This description of Casimira Rodríguez's work was prepared when Casimira Rodríguez was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2006.
Casimira Rodríguez is breaking the pattern of exploitation, discrimination, and trafficking to which 150,000 Bolivian domestic workers continue to be subjected; as she was for eighteen years. Casimira fosters solidarity among the workers, negotiates with employers, and counteracts the conditions and misinformation that drive girls and young women to migrate in the first place.
