    schema:description "In 'Downwardly Global' Lalaie Ameeriar examines the transnational labor migration of Pakistani women to Toronto. Despite being trained professionals in fields including engineering, law, medicine, and education, they experience high levels of unemployment and poverty.

'Downwardly Global' juxtaposes the experiences of these women."@en ;
