Historically, women’s immigration to the United States has been under studied by social scientists. Men’s migration dominates the migration literature, while women’s migration is relegated to a secondary position. Recently, this skewed pattern is changing; though still, when research focuses on women, there is a tendency for only women scholars to undertake migration and gender studies. Thus, the intent of this paper is to fill a research gap related to gender and migration.
