About This Talk
The choice to migrate, to leave loved ones behind and to venture forth into the unknown represents for millions of impoverished women a first step towards poverty's end. Today, there are over 200 millions migrants working abroad; half are women. Each year, they remit some US$300 billion to developing nations, building homes, feeding families and educating children. These migrants and their remittances are a pivotal force in eradicating poverty. Dr. Mavrinac charts the potential of today's migrant women.
