Hebrew, as poet Yona Wallach put it, is a sex-crazed language. It is impossible to write about migrant workers in Hebrew without assigning them a gender. The masculine form, the supposedly unmarked gender, is often used as gender neutral. But since labor migration is becoming more and more feminized, and given that the case studies discussed in this paper concern mostly women and some of the issues discussed are women speci c, I have opted, in the Hebrew version of this paper, for the feminine grammatical form.
