Women, Migration and the State book
Over the last fifteen years or so there has been an increased recognition, amongst women researchers at least, of the need to provide a gendered account of migratory processes. Nevertheless, despite a recognition of the importance of women's role in migration, many accounts of contemporary migratory processes continue to fail to take on board what this means at an analytical level. For instance Stephen Castles' and Mark Miller's book The Age of Migration starts by commenting on the increased feminization of migration and how this is one of four tendencies likely to playa major role in migratory movements over the next twenty years. But the book in itself does not pursue this observation in any serious way (Castles and Miller, 1993).
