The concept of migration and displacement is a global notion that manifests itself in the Southern African region. This article will discuss the concept as disproportionately affecting women more than their male counterparts, and in some instances even being deconstructive to the concept or the notion of “home”, depriving migrant or displaced women of a sense of belonging. To achieve this purpose, it will explore the myriad forms of displacement and provide a feminist critic of migration focussing on inequality and exclusion.
