It is now well-acknowledged amongst feminist scholars that the andocentric bias inherent in migration studies has contributed to a neglect of the centrality of women in migration processes. In this guide, we will look at some feminist scholarship on issues of migration, trafficking and sites of work. We will primarily refer to case studies and literature from the Global South in order to enrich our understanding of gender, work and migration. Specifically this guide explores how this literature : 1) identifies the roles of women and men in migration processes; 2) discerns how gender and other regimes of power structure migration; and 3) outlines the predominant forms of migration for women today.
