Review quote

All the studies are firmly within the feminist paradigm and most are set in the service sector where women are in demand to perform 'women's work.' For students and researchers in sociology and social anthropology as well as for labour market theorists, they offer valuable insights into the motivations and pressures that underlie the worldwide feminisation of economic migration, the fieldwork having been done in Eastern Europe among women mostly doing domestic work, nursing and care of the elderly. Journal of Contemporary European Studies This is an excellent volume that brings together ethnographic, qualitative and quantitative data and approaches.
