Global Migration () Migration patterns changed dramatically throughout this period, and the numbers of migrants increased significantly. These changes were closely connected to the development of transoceanic empires and a global capitalist economy.

In those countries, women often outnumber men among international migrants. In the developing world, the 32 million female migrants present in were still outnumbered by their male counterparts, but not by much. Clearly, female migration is a key constituent of global migration.
