Using the methods of documental study and a case study of the Yangtze River delta region, the paper identifies the four factors that have had a positive impact on migration willingness of rural women: age, level of education, work seniority outside of their home villages, and whether or not they have school age children. Economic considerations also remain an important factor that affects the migration decisions of women and men. Additionally, women pay more attention than men to the education of children, while men show more concern than women for self-development in the process of migration. Children’s education and self-development are the primary subjective reasons for women’s migration, while employment, business, and work transfer are the primary objective reason. Compared with migrant men, migrant women have very limited channels for seeking jobs, a narrow field for employment, and generally lower employment levels, which directly result in yearly income of women migrant being much lower than that of men migrant. Regarding the problems arising after migration, both men and women express concern about inter-personal relationships, and making a living, and children going to school and problems they may face in this regard.
