Returning Home: challenges and opportunities for women migrant workers in the Nepali labour market
PDF File Size: 5.2 MB | Download   
This report on returnee women migrant workers (RWMWs) draws from insights shared by 1,210 women to
understand the influences, conditions, and challenges that characterize women’s migration from and reintegration
to Nepal.
As gender roles are still firmly entrenched in many Nepali families, the competing economic need that compels
migration disturbs these roles while, at the same time, presents opportunity for families to ease financial burdens. In
many cases, women migrate from their homes for work and return to a changing social situation wherein they are
forced to meet numerous familial demands while also continuing to earn for the household. This is no easy task and
little is known about how these women navigate this process.
