About this title

Synopsis:

Women make up about half of the world's migrants, so it is little surprise that the international migration of women has been attracting significant attention in recent years. Most agree that global restructuring increasingly forces a large number of women in developing countries to emigrate to richer countries. But is poverty the only motivating factor? In Women in Motion, Nana Oishi examines the cross-national patterns of international female migration in Asia. Drawing on fieldwork in ten countries―both migrant-sending and migrant-receiving―the author investigates the differential impact of globalization, state policies, individual autonomy, and various social factors. This is the first study of its kind to provide an integrative approach to and a comparative perspective on female migration flows from multiple countries.

From the Back Cover:

“One of the most comprehensive comparative studies of women's migration to date.”—Kristen Hill Maher, San Diego State University
“Nana Oishi's groundbreaking book documents the important theoretical and policy implications posed by female migrants' experiences, and offers a vivid and sympathetic description of the actual experiences of these women living so far from home. Wide ranging in scope, brilliantly argued, and drawing on a breathtaking scope of empirical research, this book is destined to be an instant classic to students of international migration, globalization, Asian societies, and gender studies, as well as an indispensable guide for policy makers, nongovernmental organizations, and state officials.”—Mary C. Waters, Harvard University
