This study grew out of a twofold engagement with the changes taking place in women’s lives in the era of liberalization and globalization. On one side was the social science researchers’ and women’s studies’ engagement with analysis based on the explicit study of categories, quantitative data, and qualitative observation of relations and developments. On the other side were the compulsions and experience of those engaged in organizing women into mass organizations, whose wide outreach and observations of social processes, had thrown up several questions that they felt were being ignored or sidelined in policy discussions. The idea of this research in fact grew in response to the demand by mass organizations, for better documentation of women’s migration in India amid reports from activists of great increases in and new and more vulnerable forms of female labour migration from the 1990s onwards.
