Migrant women’s empowerment in the city

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/WebsiteWebsite contribution


It is international women’s day today and the world’s women are on the move like never before: according to figures from the International Institute for Migration, women constitute 49% of the world’s 214 million transnational migrants. It is often assumed that transnational migration is empowering to women, particularly if their destination country is one where women enjoy greater levels of gender equality than they do in their country of origin.
