Abstract [en]

Migration has implication for women's sexual and reproductive health and rights. Our purpose with this study was to explore unmarried migrant women's perception on relationships and sexuality in the context of Sri Lankan Free Trade Zones. Sixteen semi-structured qualitative interviews were analysed using thematic analysis. We found that the women's perceptions were influenced by gendered hegemonic notions of respectability and virginity. Complex gender relations both worked in favour of, and against, women's sexual and reproductive health and rights. Programs for improvement of migrant women's health should be informed by contextualised analysis of gender relations with its various dimensions and levels.
