The participation of mothers in labor migration deserves reflection because it illuminates a turning point in modes of thinking about home, motherhood, geo-political borders as territories of ideological stability. Traditionally, labor migration was a masculine practice that naturalized paternal duty to be exercised from outside the house, many times reduced to economic expression. For example, after World War II, Germany rebuilt the economy with massive labor imports from Turkey. Maghrebian workers were instrumental in France.
