"This book gives a family perspective on migration — that an increasing number of scholars and readers are now calling for. It is especially important in the light of the feminization of Filipino migrant workers: Women now account for 65 percent of the total number of the OFWs, a much more dramatic ration than the global figure of 48.6 percent for global migration. Definitely the social costs of labor migration, although recognized, and largely understated and cannot be fully quantified." – Bernardita Azurin Quimpo
