Abstract

Migration, a process affecting the lives of millions of women in the developing world, is closely interrelated to the changing roles and status of women. The task of elucidating under which circumstances migration leads
to improvements of the status of women was undertaken by those participating in the Expert Group Meeting on the Feminization of Internal Migration organized by the Population Division of the United Nations in collaboration with the Instituto Nacional de Estadistica, Geografia e Informatica (INEGI) of Mexico. The meeting took place at INEGI headquarters in Aguascalientes, Mexico, October 22-25, 1991. It was made possible by the financial support of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
