About the product

Women’s migration differs from that of men in terms of its features and implications. For instance, women find themselves confined to precarious jobs characterized by a high degree of exploitation, such as sex work and domestic service. This bibliography on the international migration of women in Latin America and the Caribbean focuses on the labour market, a sector in which inequality and discrimination against women is highly prevalent.
