The phenomenon of ‘feminization of migration’, is defined and understood in various ways by different people. It requires a comprehensive analysis of the complexity of contemporary patterns of international migration. Recent studies have pointed to the increasing diversification both within and across nationality groups and polarization of skilled versus lesser skilled workers in the various migration streams. Given these recent trends, 'migration' has evolved into, a highly stratified phenomenon. ‘Stratification’ emphasizes the combined effects of gender, ethnicity, legal status, skill level and mode of entry or exit; therefore, women's migration is highly ‘stratified’.
