The study was undertaken in two blocks of Samastipur districts of Bihar state namely Pusa and Kalyanpur with 30 migrants family women and 30 non-migrants family women. It accomplished a total of sixty women as respondents to know the impact of male migration on level of mobility of women in rural society. It was found that, among migrants family respondents had gone alone outside of home to carry out various activities such as shopping (50%), health centre (33.33%) and children’s school functions (26.66%).While in non-migrants family only (13.33%) respondents had gone to market alone. Level of mobility of migrants family respondents was negatively affected by caste, number of children and family size. While family income, family occupation and social participation were positively affected the level of mobility of non-migrants family respondents. Therefore, a positive impact of the male migration was observed on level of mobility of women in the study area.
