Women Left Behind: New article by UO Sociology doctoral candidate

Citing specific examples from the field, UO Sociology doctoral candidate Sarah Ahmed explains why women left behind remain close to the very families that confine and monitor their movement, and why, in some cases, women left behind turn a blind eye toward their husband’s second or third marriage, in her recent article published in Gender & Society titled “Women Left Behind: Migration, Agency, and the Pakistani Woman.” The article can be found on their website, here.
