Migrants in a Global Economy
Volume 27, Issue 1 | March 2019
This issue explores the diversity, scope and value of migrant women's work, and challenges enduring misconceptions and myths about women migrant workers and the work they do. Feminist researchers and activists are challenging policymakers to shift their focus wider to see migration from an intersectional feminist perspective.
