Notes:

This volume studies the patterns and consequences of long-term migration among Asian women, primarily ‘solo migrant women’, who migrate globally as well as across the Asian continent in order to find work. Covering a broad terrain of gender issues, the volume analyzes the changing gender composition of migration streams and the specific conditions under which they migrate, as also compares the different outcomes of male and female migration.
