Rural to urban migration is one of the most striking social, demographic and economic phenomena in China today and its scope has aroused the concern of the central authorities as well as widespread discussion among the general public in recent years. At the same time, the number of women who make up the migrant population in major Chinese cities has increased in the last decade and new researches have started to investigate the relationship between gender and migration. Considering that gender plays a crucial role in shaping migration experiences and dynamics, this issue discusses some of the gender specific aspects of migration, taking up issues like welfare, cultural representation, social activism and prostitution, and also approaching State policies and legal responses.
