Show Summary Details


This chapter examines rural women and the ways that migration impacts them. It focuses on a group of people and institutions who are not migrating per se but who must respond to rapid migration and urbanization taking place miles away in the urban parts of the state. Migration histories tend to naturally concentrate on the migrants as the central characters; but here it is shown that the impact and reach of migration influences rural populations even if their mobility is more static over time than their urban counterparts.

Keywords: rural women; migration; urbanization; rural population
