Never before has the world been more tightly woven and the movement of people greater between and within continents and countries. Although COVID-19 has slowed migration, in 2019 more than 270 million people—nearly half of them women—were living in countries other than the one where they were born. Drawn by the promise of a better future, women increasingly have traveled to wealthier countries, taking jobs in child-and eldercare and domestic work, as well as manufacturing and agriculture—a shift described as “the feminization of migration.” For women who are forced to leave home because of famine or violence, migration is a gamble for their very survival.
Photographers with The Everyday Projects, who use their medium to challenge stereotypes and amplify storytellers worldwide, have come together to document the impact of migration on women around the globe in a major National Geographic magazine feature and several online stories. The project was created with additional support from the National Geographic Society.
