This introductory chapter discusses gender and immigration, especially the place of men and women in society. The first section is concerned with the arrival of immigration scholarship and gender studies during the 1980s and the 1990s. It shows that the development in immigration research was derived from a huge increase in literal human movement across borders during the late 20th century. The next sections examine the different stages of feminist scholarship, starting with the remedy for the exclusion of women in research. This is followed by a discussion of the second stage, which is the transition from “women and migration” to “gender and migration.” The third stage of feminist scholarship is presently emerging, and this is viewing gender as a constitutive element of immigration. The last sections of the chapter serve as a summary of the next chapters.
