The excerpt tells me that Fatou’s story is not a unique one. The statistics tells me that most migrant workers are female and that many of them work as domestic workers just like Fatou. She is being exploited by the family she is working for, but in a way that is not very easy to see. Fatou is feeling like a free girl, but she is not. The fact that they have her passport and that she does not have any money confirms this.
