Abstract:

Scholarship on international or national migration in Africa lays emphasis on males as breadwinners of the homes. In Cameroon's past, men dominated migration from the savanna to the littoral mainly to work in the German and British plantations. Today, globalization has provided opportunities for industry and business expansion in many countries including Cameroon, which has attracted a greater migration of women to the littoral quadrant than was the case before. This increase in female southward movement as a result of global capital flow and services to this region is a challenge to stereotypes in the migration history of Cameroon.
