Abstract

This paper provides a review of the various trends of female migration in Asia and academic debates in the abundant literature on the feminization of migration. It will discuss various discourses of the structural traps, estranged plights, and agency of female migrants. Through exploring selected cases of female migration in Asia, the paper will examine the emotional aspects of migration economics and highlight a genre of transnational femininity developed within the migration landscape in Asia. The author seeks to bring attention to research gaps to be filled and provide prospective research agenda on women and migration.
