Gender and Mobility: a Critical Introduction / 1. Intersectional Approaches to Human Mobility / 2. Globally Mobile Life / 3. Global Political Economy and Global Mobility / 4. Policing Borders and Boundaries / 5. Abuse Crime and Mobility / 6. Re-imaging Global Mobilities / Bibliography / Index
Gender and Mobility brings a critical approach to the study of gender and migration, using feminist theories to understand how gender shapes global mobilities, and how local, national and international policy frameworks impact on these. I would highly recommend this book to all those interested in migration, mobility and gender relations.

Penttinen and Kynsilehto take us on a scholarly feminist journey that maps gender and mobility in deeply empathetic, challenging and unsettling ways. Gender and migration scholars will read this book but its significance is greater for those in mainstream IR who continue to believe that we can theorise without considering the lived realities of people moving across space and time. That myth has been powerfully busted in this book.
