Anny Bakalian, of The Middle East and Middle Eastern American Center, reviews Gender in Transnationalism: Home, Longing and Belonging among Moroccan Migrant Women, by Ruba Salih. The book examines migration through a gendered lens, emphasizing that for some women, migration is a result of their agency and choice, while others are dependents following their husbands. Additionally, because many Muslims feel marginalized in Italy, they strengthen connections to their homeland, living transnational lives.
