Migration and Women Casual Workers
Migration is now a central part of India's socioeconomic landscape, but few of the studies and policy discussions on this issue address the reality that the majority of migrants in India are
women. Yet this fact remains almost entirely invisible in discussions around migration, and particularly when discussing migrant workers. This study aims to examine the experiences and living conditions of migrant women workers, and in particular inter-state migrant women who work as casual or daily wage workers or who belong to families dependent on such labour at their site of destination.
