Summary
Over the last several decades, Thailand has emerged as a newly industrialized country (NIC). Sociocultural norms combined with rapid industrialization put young rural Thai women in a unique position by demanding labour migration to fill export-service industry jobs. Young women who opt for internal migration to urban areas generally have two options: work in light industry factory jobs or enter the commercial sex trade. Many seize this opportunity to migrate from rural villages to urban centres as a way to fulfill filial obligations. The move is also alluring, however, as the urban life presents the chance to earn money, gain autonomy from families and villages. This case study discusses this topic
