In Taiwan, small-scale subcontracting factories are found in rice fields and urban areas, front yards and living rooms, mostly employing married women in line with the government slogan that promotes work in the home "Living Rooms as Factories". The author studies the experiences of the married women who work in this satellite system of factories.
