Since the late 20th century, substantial labour migration from developing countries to high-income countries has occurred. This includes a substantial portion of female migrants. The term feminization of migration has been proposed as a suggested "gendered pattern" in international migration where there is a trend towards a higher percentage of women among voluntary migrants.

Studies on women migrant workers in high-income countries tend to focus on their employment in domestic work and care work for dual-income families.
