Abstract

The paper focuses on Singapore, an aspiring global city, to investigate how global city spaces are transgressed by transnational migrants who may challenge, inflect or reaffirm the gendered spatial boundaries with which the city is scripted. It focuses on three groups of women to unmask the gendering at work as well as the gendered implications of transnationalism in Singapore's state-led drive to global city status
