This chapter gives information about the demographic, cultural, religious and marital backgrounds of 120 migrant female domestic workers found in three cities: London, Berlin and Istanbul. The women belonged to 28 different nationalities and had affiliations with 10 different religious sects, either under Islam or Christianity or defined themselves as atheists. This chapter presents the biographical data about the women. The chapter also discusses the complexities of carrying out research in three countries, each with a different first language, among what are usually seen as ‘hard to reach’ migrant workers. The epistemological and political positionality of the two authors is also set out.
