Recent globalization processes have changed significantly the conditions and features of female rural-to-urban labour migration in Thailand, particularly in terms of social networks and rural-urban interactions. The Thai case is specifically interesting because the Thai societal model is often said to support female migration better than other cultures. Thai female migrants encounter globalization, especially when they search for employment in the industries of Bangkok and its vicinity, the site of condensing economic globalization. The “feminization of urban employment” and the “feminization of labour migration” actually represent two sides of the same coin.
