This page in:

International_migration_of_women So far we have learned a lot about migration. But even though women account for nearly a half of all migrants, we still know little about the impact that gender has on labor markets participation or the amounts of money sent back - estimated to reach nearly $200 billion a year.

A new book - hoping to fill the gap - focuses on the differences behind men and women's decision to migrate and remit.  It also points to some understudied aspects of migration such as family cohesion and trafficking of women.
