Women on the Move is a collection of open access articles created by COST Action 19112. It focuses on women’s migration across time and disciplines, and it encourages the interplay between different approaches and periods. It welcomes a diversity of article types offered by Open Research Europe, including research articles, reviews, case studies, data notes, method articles, essays, and more, and facilitates the dissemination of all research outputs as openly and quickly as possible.These articles combine to unveil the presence and contribution of women migrants to the structuring and consolidation of sending and receiving nations, be they in the past or the present.
The objective of this collection is to make women migrants visible because migration has long been analysed from a gender-blind perspective and women’s presence made invisible by an overwhelming focus on men and families. Hence, this collection aims at showing women’s active participation in migration processes in the past as in the present, unrestricted to any specific discipline.
The collection encourages groundbreaking theoretical and methodological approaches and all articles are subject to rigorous and open peer review by invited experts on gender and migration.
