El siguiente artículo estudia cómo la contratación de mujeres inmigrantes en el sector doméstico y del cuidado, por parte de las mujeres empleadoras españolas, y la consecuente globalización/mundialización del cuidado, permite reproducir en los Países Mediterráneos un modelo de gestión del trabajo doméstico y del cuidado basado en prácticas (neo)servilistas. Asimismo, pese al traslado del trabajo reproductivo a la esfera del mercado, éste sigue arrastrando un imaginario servil que traba sus posibilidades de profesionalización.
