By: Gulati, Leela.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New Delhi Sage Publication 1993Description: 176 pg.ISBN: 8170363543 .Subject(s): Women | Migration - Male | Migration Impact On Women | Migration - Human | Migration | Male Migration | Impact Of Male Migration On WomenDDC classification: 396 Summary: With huge funds at their disposal, the countries of West Asia attract skilled labor from other countries to work on construction sites, in factories, and in various labor-intensive activities. Men from the Indian state of Kerala are among those attracted to such opportunities. Yet, while studies exist which address the impact such migrations have on men, none have examined the impact on the women they leave behind. Focusing on ten such women, Gulati examines the various health, psychological, financial, and family issues that arise when men leave home. Written in a direct and accessible style, this ethnographic account is essential reading for all those involved in women's studies, migration studies, economics, sociology, and demography. "The book is written in a direct and simple language. While reading the profiles you fell as if the woman is talking to you directly and thus they create a better impact and empathy."
